John 12:42-43 – Do you have an audience of One?

S – John 12:42-43 “Many people did believe in Him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.”

“Well done, good and faithful servant…”

O – Many people were not open about their faith in Christ.  Why?  “They loved human praise more than the praise of God.”  “They wouldn’t admit it for fear.”

A – I must be bold about what I believe.  I cannot let human praise be what drives me.

P – Lord, give me a deep love for Your praise that surpasses my love for human praise.  Give me boldness to move forward without fear of human response.

Who are you trying to impress?  Whose praise do you seek?
