Whose Applause Do You Want? An Insight for Lesson 4

There’s one huge difference between “representing” a business, an organization, or simply a group of people and being a “representative” or “messenger” of Jesus. Can you think what it might be? Paul tells the Thessalonians that as a “messenger approved by God”, he is not looking for the applause or approval of men. His one goal is to please God, to have the motive of his heart be in line with his true calling. Lord, today, help me to be very conscious of whose approval and acceptance and admiration I really want to have. May the words of my mouth, the tone of my voice, the motives of my heart and the things that I do and do not do, be pleasing in Your sight. (Psalm 19: 14)
