The Most



Isn’t it peculiar and kinda funny - we all seem to have this flaw
Whenever we walk and trip a bit, we all look to see who saw
Of course it’s our embarrassment, but is there a telling link
That we care a little bit too much of what other people think?

I wonder ‘cause sometimes I think I see it go too far
Seeking approval from most of them who aren’t headed where we are
We don’t want to seem too radical, while sharing what we know
We “dumb it down” and laugh it off to keep the status quo

Only knowing “enough” of Scripture, not a Biblical book worm
Trying so hard not to be uncool, we risk being lukewarm
THEY might say that we’ve gone too far and it doesn’t take all that
Have we become pleasers of men? Is that where our heart is at?

Lest we forget that fateful day when we first bowed the knee
The thoughts of others eclipsed by “Just as I am without on plea”.
No second thought to those standing by as we approached The Throne
We stood before an audience of One. It was Him and Him alone.

Seems somehow that we forget, seeking approval from the crowd.
When truthfully, MOST don’t choose this way, “in hope they do not plow”.
So you be strong and don’t shrink back when they look discontent
They’re not your judge, so don’t you budge – for you were saved and sent.

Don’t let the most dictate your way – for Most don’t have a clue.
Fact of the matter it won’t be most, “the saved” are surprisingly few.
You preach the word, and pray for sight that most of them may see
And seek to labor in the field, just like you and me.

It’s truly a sad realization; “Yes, so many CAN be so wrong”.
Don’t seek affirmation in the looks they give. To this world you don’t belong.
You give an account to God alone, “THEY” won’t be anywhere close.
It matters not what others say, press on to please God the most.

Here’s The Word;

Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.

In Him,
Cros
