The unsaved already does this. They think “Hey! I must be a good person, after all I’m as good as Jim down the street. Comparing ourselves to one another-like God grades on a curve. But, we as Christians, can be guilty of the same thing. When we start thinking and saying things like this. “Don’t you think God understands my weaknesses." "That’s just how I am." I could go on. God doesn’t de evolve to our thinking; he expects us to come up to his thinking. Man's ways alway lead to death. "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 16:25) The Bible tells us to let the mind of Christ be in us. "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 2:5)
When we start thinking that God accepts where we are at instead of just understanding where we are at, what we usually do it take it a step too far, and then condone our lack of whatever it is. If we don’t witness, we make excuses. I’m just a shy person, I want people to like me. I just don’t know what to say. All I can say is that I am so glad the Apostle Paul didn’t let this wanting people to like him, stand in the way of his being mistreated; so he could bring the message of the New Covenant to us. Folks, we were built for acceptance, everyone wants to be liked. There will always be people who will like us and support us. It just can’t be everyone. I heard a Bible teacher say once. Hey there are people who aren’t gonna like me no matter what I do; so why don’t I just break out of my shell and do it God’s way; at least he’ll like what I am doing.
I think we really have a choice. We can try to get everyone to like us. That's what I did most of my life. And that doesn't really work anyway. We then end up not really doing God’s will with boldness. Or we can just accept this; that we will have a split group; some who hate us and some who love us because we are a polarizing figure that says "this is the way walk ye in it" and thus please God. Which do you want to be?
