"We labor under the false assumption that if we live perfectly everybody will accept us, while there was One who lived His life perfectly, and everybody rejected Him."
-Neil Anderson, Who I am in Christ
It's true. I do live under that false assumption. Even though I know that my Savior was rejected and abandoned by the very people He came to save, even though, deep down, I know that I can't please everyone, even though I realize the bible says I will suffer for doing right........
I really want to believe that I can make everyone happy with me.
But when Jesus calls us to be peacemakers, He's not saying we should be people pleasers. He calls me to look to Him, to rest in Him, to take my identity from Him.
Help us Lord, to live for You alone.
