Do I sometimes seek approval from the wrong people? A boss, coworker, family member, etc.?
Do I place that person higher in priority than spending time with God or do I value his advice so highly I don’t seek God’s advice or I disregard God’s leading?
Jesus valued only God’s opinion and did not let the disapproval of the spiritual leaders of those times dissuade Him. He evaluated Himself according to His assignment from His Father.
It’s natural to seek the approval of those we respect however, we can’t make their approval higher than our God’s own.
🌟 “Your approval means nothing to me because I know you don’t have God’s love within you. ” #John 5:41-42 NLT ⭐️ “But I have a greater witness than John—my teachings and my miracles. The Father gave me these works to accomplish, and they prove that He sent me.” John 5:36 NLT
A story lost in the mists of time from Jamestown: these three indentured servants : James Gregory , a scot , John punch , an African and Victor a Dutchman ran away from planter Hugh Gwyn. They were apprehended inMaryland . The punishment? 4 extra years of service for James and Victor... lifetime of service for John Punch. First documented slave :Jamestown 1640. Why? Not European? Not Christian? Better worker? Who knows.... #illegalimmigrants#chesapeakebay#oilpainting#jamestown#john punch #james Gregory #european#Christian#slavery#tsenacommacah
Good afternoon 🌞. I chose these verses because personally I think they are so crazy. Out of the two fish and 5 loaves of bread, Jesus was able to feed 5 thousand people and had 12 baskets of left overs. You may wonder where I’m going with this but I took these verses as lets say you have a calling in your life, right? You look at this calling and you say Jesus I don’t think I’m ready or I don’t think it’s enough to help anyone right now. But he’s already blessed you with this calling and you using this gift could possibly save 5 thousand hungry people searching for Jesus. And possibly even more because he took something small and made it so much bigger than you ever expected. I mean I don’t know if anyone else sees it this way. Thank you all anyways for following and liking some of the stuff I post. Hopefully soon I’ll get the hang of all this. #bookofjohn#john#instagram#jesuschrist#faith#food#calling#jesus#cristo#lovejesus#bibleverse#bible#biblestudy#hungry#verseoftheday#christ#christian#christians#followers#lovequotes#love#god
