YESTERDAY: Open heaven January 2021 Thursday January 14

TOPIC: MCY: MEN-PLEASING

Memorize: The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his
trust in the Lord shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25

Open Heavens

Read: 1 Samuel 15:18-30

The element M in our equation for Resistance in the “Mathematics of Christ in You” (MCY) series that started on the 11th of January, stands for Men- Pleasing. Some people just want to be known by all. The problem with this however, is that you will begin to pay too much attention to what people think of you and you will be scared to offend them even when you are on the side of truth.

And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
1 Samuel 15:24
In the Scripture above, Saul disobeyed God because he wanted to maintain his popularity amongst men. Fame can create a major problem for you, and that is why I do not like it. You cannot live the life that you love to live; you cannot just stop by the road and buy roasted plantain when you feel like eating some. There are a lot of eyes on you. Left to me, if could do the work of God without showing my face everywhere, I would gladly do it. I thank God I am not after fame, so when people criticize me on social media because of my Bible-based beliefs, I don’t pay attention. Some preachers can’t preach the truth anymore because they want to remain popular with the congregation. The fear of man brings a snare (Proverbs 29:25). Beware!
Sometime ago, I went to minister in a Church for a three-day programme. I had preached on faith and other topics and many souls had been saved. I then told the Pastor that would like to preach a sermon on restitution on the last day. He pleaded with me not to do so, tagging it ‘hard teaching’ He also added that some of the people l had gathered would leave because of this. I told him I did not care about a big congregation headed for hell. What matters most Is preparing these people to get to Heaven. I have always told my children that I am a holiness preacher and so I will teach holiness until I die. This will never change even if people decide to leave the Church because of the ‘hard teaching’ what I am after is ensuring that you make it to Heaven. You can call me old-fashioned, I don’t care. If we get to Heaven together, you will thank me over there for teaching you holiness.
Men-pleasers seek fame at the expense of pleasing God and this ultimately leads to destruction. Don’t please people and displease God.
Put Him first always (Matthew 6:33).

Open heaven January 2021 Hymn 24:

Take My Life,
And Let It Be

Prayer Point:

Ask God to take away every desire in you to be a men-
Pleaser
