If I Still Pleased Men

For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ (Galatians 1:10 NKJV)

What a wonder it is

To rise above

The approval of men

To rest in

And to desire

The approval of God

The true mark of deadness

To the flesh

Is when we

Stop being men pleasers

And become God pleasers

Those who strive to please men

Are not pleasing God

They are pleasing themselves

And their ego

With the comfort

And satisfaction

That comes from the

Admiration and approval of men

We must search within us

To constantly evaluate

Whom we are pleading

Men or God

May we reject the pleasures

And ways of the world

In order to rest

In the arms

Of God’s love
