Do you sometimes find yourself doing things just to get accepted by the people around you – things you’re later a bit ashamed of? Ever wondered why?
Imagine these three things were really real for you: 1) you are someone whom Jesus chooses to live inside by his Spirit 2) Jesus living inside you makes you part of God’s Kingdom 3) no matter how badly things are going around you, God’s Kingdom is not in trouble. So ultimately YOU’RE not in trouble either.
Next time you’re tempted to do something to win the approval of people around you – ask the Spirit to remind you who you really are. It might make all the difference
