Galatians 1:10 ” Am I now trying to win approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Paul realized that he would never be able to please everyone by his ministry.  No matter how he approached people,  he found some would listen…some would scoff…and some would take offense.  When we’re a people-pleaser, our focus is to deliberately and intentionally mollify our message…to water it down in order to be palatable for all, but in the process every ounce of Holy Spirit power is leached out.  God isn’t calling us to be wishy-washy, lukewarm Christians who try to be “politically correct” with every person we meet.  Paul understood that his allegiance was to Jesus Christ and not to the crowds…his total dependence was then on the Master of the universe not man.
