Reputations

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Matthew 10:38. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Peter said no to eating food that is tabooed to Jews probably because he was more concerned about his own reputation than his obedience to God. We must admit we struggle with the same fear. We question, “What will my friends think of me if I ….?” We fear telling someone they will go to hell without Jesus because we’re afraid it will hurt our relationship with them. What about our relationship with God? Shouldn’t that be our first concern? Let’s take time today to reflect where we are in our concern for our own reputations
