How can you believe when you receive glory from one another?

John 5:44 "How can you believe when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God."

Approval from others actually hinders our ability to believe! To seek that approval is to be crazy, if you want to be a person of faith.

Live for the approval of God not others. Daily look for His guidance and direction. When we receive glory from God we have what we need. When we receive glory from others, we have to shake it off before we can move forward in faith.

John 12:43 loved approval of men instead of God.

Romans 8:7,8 mind set on flesh is hostle towards God.

1 Sam 2:30 God honors those who honor Him.

2 Cor 10:18 "For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends."
James 2:1 "My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism."

Galatians 1:10 "For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I wre still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ."

John 5:41 Jesus does not receive glory from men.

So seek approval from God, and be careful when men approve of you.
