People-Pleaser or Lord-Pleaser?

What I am about to write is words that God is telling me to write. But I am going to write them as if Jesus is speaking right to you. The words "I," "Me," "My," and "Mine" always mean Jesus, while "You" and "Your" mean you.

Without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who truly want to find him. -Hebrews 11:6

Have you ever heard of a people-pleaser? A people-pleaser is someone who pleases people instead of Me. They put all there effort into pleasing others, and constantly worry about what they might think if you said this or if you wore that. But I don't judge you by your appearance, or what you say or do. No matter what you've done in the past, I will always love you.

Now, I don't say this because it's my job, I say it because it's the truth. When your lost, and you have no where to go, come to Me. Because I am the Lord of lords, and the God of gods. No one will be able to stand against you if you have Me by your side. Your not bullet-proof yet, but you will be if you accept me as your God.

The glorious God is the only Ruler, the King of kings and the Lord of lords... God will be honored, and his power will last forever. -1 Timothy 6:15-16

I love you more than anything because I created you. No one else. I took the time and effort to make you just the way you are, so don't turn me down. I am your God, the Father in whom you will love forever. I will take you as you are, you don' t have to prove yourself worthy, because I already know. I know your past and your future. I will not harm you, and unlike the people of this world, I will not forsake you. So stop trying to please others and start pleasing me.

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. -John 4:23-24 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28
