Don’t Live Just To Please Yourself

Rom. 15:1-6

Without a doubt, we have the right to indulge ourselves in some areas without getting into sin. For example, after a hard day’s work, we have the right to relax and take some rest. However our desire to please God in building other people up in the faith may constrain us to forgo some of those rights. A Christian whose main goal is to please himself is dead while still living; he cannot follow Jesus as a true disciple. Jesus laid down His right as the Son of God to redeem us from our sins. He took the form of a servant and displayed obedience, even to the death on the cross. He laid for us the example to follow, not to focus wholly on our rights and the things that please us, but to seek how our lifestyles and our words will edify those around us. Influencing others for Christ does not come by accident, it demands conscious effort to touch other people for good.

Point of Emphasis:   Let each of us please his neighbour for his good, leading to edification.

Prayer Point:            Use me, O God, as an instrument to affect the lives of others for good.
