To many times people are governed by other people’s opinions, they try so hard to fit into a group that they change who they are just to seem like one of the crowd. This happens in all aspects of life, even in the church.
God made each and everyone of us unique with our own personalities and when people get saved, they do not loose who they are, but God uses who they are to reach other people.
Psa 139:14 I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
Stop trying to be someone you are not and be yourself because God has designed for YOU to excel and do great things for the kingdom.
Jer 29:11 For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says YAHWEH; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you a future and a hope.
Eph 2:10 for we are His workmanship, created in Messiah Yahshua unto good works, which YAHWEH before prepared that we should walk in them.
You see you do not have to follow blindly any group just to fit in, but you have been transformed and in filled by the Holy Spirit to stand out!
When Jesus came the earth he did not conform to the religious attitudes that stopped people from coming to God, but he exposed them and went in the opposite direction:
Mat 9:10 ¶ While he was having dinner at Matthew’s home, many tax collectors and sinners arrived and began eating with Jesus and his disciples.
Mat 9:11 The Pharisees saw this and asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
Mat 9:12 When Jesus heard that, he said, “Healthy people don’t need a physician, but sick people do.
Mat 9:13 Go and learn what this means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice,’ because I did not come to call righteous people, but sinners.”
It is not about religious activities
Luk 20:46 “Beware of the scribes! They like to walk around in long robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.
Luk 20:47 They devour widows’ houses and say long prayers to cover it up. They will receive greater condemnation!”
We are saved by grace through faith, which is a gift from God and that faith is constantly growing as our experiences with God grows. So it should not be what people think about you that counts, but what God thinks about you. People pleasers will never do and say what God wants them to do and say because they are always too afraid to offend.
I was appalled at the Arch Bishop of Cantebury’s stance on the guy marriage issue, as someone who is supposed to be in leadership guiding the church in truth. However God in his word has never commissions an office in his church called Arc Bishop anyway, so if the foundation isn’t strong then the building will not be strong either.
We need to be bold enough to speak against what the masses are saying, if what the masses are saying is incorrect:
When all of the prophets were prophesying victory in the war for Israel and Judah because that is what the kings wanted to hear, it was just Micaiah who prophesied the truth against the masses.
So know what to stand for and GO FOR IT!
Parallel Business Principles
When you know why you are building your business then go for it and do not let the opinions of others sway you from what you believe in. The majority of people are financial going nowhere quickly and they would be more than happy to make room in their car for you.
When you are building a home-based business you are going against the drain, doing something unconventional. However to be financially free you have to be unconventional.
So see what the majority of people are doing and do the opposite!
