The Gospel (the Truth) does one of two things: It either offends people, or it makes people free. 😠πŸ₯°

We have all been instructed to preach the Gospel, but it will come at a price. (Mark 16:15) πŸ˜…

People will hate us, get offended at us, cut us off, try to censor us, and even lie about and discredit us. (Matthew 5:11) 😀

But God says that when these things happen that we are BLESSED and we should REJOICE and be HAPPY about it! (Matthew 5:12) πŸ˜‡

Why? Because our reward from God will be GREAT! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Those who try to please and humour the crowd will never be anything more than mediocre and average. 🀏🏼

But those who want to do anything significant for the Kingdom of God must be prepared to be provocative and controversial. 😑😲🀨

Let’s make a decision to be be someone who lives to please God, not man.β˜πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Make this an effortless habit with this daily confession:β€œI am a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser. I am free from the fear of man. I do not seek praise and approval from men, but everything I do, I do to the glory of God. I am a vessel for honour – set aside as holy, useful to the Master and ready for every good work!” (Galatians 1:10, John 12:43, Colossians 3:17, 2 Timothy 2:21)Let’s be people who boldly speak the truth in love and pray for people to have ears to hear. (Ephesians 4:15, Matthew 11:15)❀️

It’s WORTH IT for the sake of those who receive the truth that makes them free. 🀩

It’s WORTH IT to have God say of us, β€œWELL DONE, good and faithful servant.” πŸ‘πŸΌβ€οΈ#faithtalks
