Honor, Faith and Love: Choose God or Men – But Don’t Fool Yourself

The rules in the kingdom of God are different than the rules in the kingdoms of men.

People pleasers are often shocked at the things I say and do. “Don’t you know people don’t like that? But they won’t like you anymore… They don’t want to hear that. That might not work.”

I’m amazed that people still think I care.

Men seek honor from one another. In Gods kingdom we seek the honor that comes from God only.

The measure of the Faith of God and the measure of the Love of God in you is critically connected to whom you seek and receive honor from.

John 5
41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

In ministry, if you seek approval and honor from audiences, organizations, systems, denominations, or the good ol boys… You may get it from them. But you will not have honor from God, or a full measure of love or faith.

When you seek honor from God you do and say what He says with no regard to the approval of men.
