V 41 I do not receive glory from people
Is that what we want? Is that what we base our decisions on…the glory and praise of man? Is that what motivates us; or what keeps us from living a life that is totally God centered? Do we fear man? Yes, of course we do, it’s a major reason why we refuse to obey God sometimes. Jesus of course did not need the glory of men, and He did not do things that would grant Him that. Instead, He did things that made Him very disliked, hated even, but glorifying His father was more important to Him than the love of man. Doing His Fathers’ work was more important. Can we say the same?
