John 6:15. Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.

Jesus refused being declaired king several times. The first time was when Satan tempted Him right after His baptism. His own disciples tried to have Him declaiired king. Jesus came to earth not to obtain glory for Himself but to glorify God. We put people on pedistales like kings; actors, sports figures, millionaires, religious leaders and others. It is our encouragement that increases their desire for power and glory and we see them crumble and fall into temptations. Our question is dowe want to follow the example of Jesus and give all glory to God or do we want glory or ourselves or others we think we want to hold as our goal to imitate? Let us be sure to give God all credit and glory.
