Approval Matters

The approval of others could be said to matter to us for two reasons: materially, because the neglect of community can bring with it physical discomfort and danger, and psychologically, because it can prove impossible to retain confidence in ourselves once others have ceased to accord us respect. But In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians he says that ‘we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel.’ There can be no higher approval than that and we are going to need that knowledge of God’s approval of us due to the physical and psychological discomfort of taking the gospel to people. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
