Whom do we seek to please
Whom do we seek to please ?

  • Eph 6:6-7 Not with eye-service, as men-pleasers; 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:

  • Col 3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God

What is eye service
What is “Eye – Service”?

  • The outward show of service, in order to impress others-a form of deception condemned by the apostle Paul

  • Eph 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

What is singleness of heart
What is “singleness of heart”?

  • All of mankind has a way of thinking that they follow, religion is not different in this regard. Man considers religion by a standard whether correct or incorrect.

  • That standard determines what we do, how we do it and when we do it.

  • It can be based on what people have told us, our own imaginations or the Bible.

  • No common grounds for belief (Bible is not their standard for their creeds)

  • Prayer is often for show

  • God’s commands are scoffed at by the majority of the religious world without hesitation

  • Greatest consideration is self gratification

  • Most service is self serving to please the masses

  • God is important to them only after pleasing self

  • Acts 20:17-20 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.

  • 18 And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,

  • 19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:

  • 20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house

Was it always this way?

  • Titus 3:3-5 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Let ours learn
Let ours learn ……

  • Titus 3:14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful
