Main Show Topic: Seeking Man’s Approval
Listen Now (Archive/Podcast):
The term used in the Holy Bible for seeking to please people rather than God is “fear of man.” In the book of John we know that the apostle shares with us how some people rejected Jesus because they were afraid of the consequences: “Many people did believe in him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. For they loved human praise more than the praise of God” John 12:42-43 (NLT).
How often do we put what others think about us ahead of what God thinks about us? It seems we are all about seeking the approval of others by what we are willing to eat, what we wear, what we own, where we shop, and how we look. We are so caught up by what others think of us that we allow such empty approval to dictate our attitude, moods, goals, desires, and even our purpose for living.
As humans living in a fallen existence, we chase after false approval, from those who themselves are without a clue.
Whose approval do you seek first; God’s or man’s?
You will be pleasantly surprised at what you will discover on this unique edition of Alive in Christ Radio. We will learn how God’s truth in aspiring to win man’s approval leads to pain, suffering, depression, and despair.
Special Guest: Pastor Bobby Keating. He is the author of “Apply Wisdom to Life’s Circumstances,” and will share with us how we CAN be abundantly successful in every area of our life by applying God’s Word to our every thought, idea, and action.
We round out our program with features including Joyce Meyer’s “Everyday Moments”, Focus on the Family’s Plugged-In Movie Review and Focus on the Family Minute, Beth Moore’s “A Quick Word”, Luis Palau’s “Reaching Your World”, and Dave Ramsey’s “Daily Money Makeover.”
On this edition of Alive in Christ, Christian Discipleship Ministries’ Founder, Tony Marino and Lynn Kennedy explore life’s guidelines verses His “God-lines”, and will it be “your way”, or “Yahweh?” We invite you to join us.
On this episode we will learn to, “let go and let God.”
“The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:37
Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || In-Studio Guest: Pastor Bobby Keating
Pastor Bobby Keating is a diligent student of The Holy Bible, a published author, teacher, success coach, prison minister, addiction counselor and the Director of the Christian Success Institute.
He studied at the University of South Carolina before studying culinary arts in France. He worked as a Chef on several world famous Mega Yachts before surrendering to Christ. He claims to have become a very accomplished alcoholic. Bobby once said, “I could drink all day long and still perform my work.” He was very accomplished and well known in the Mega Yacht industry. Christ helped him break the bondage of addiction and guided him into developing a program to help others who are bound by addiction. Through the diligent study of His Holy Word, he discovered an entire new world; one in which living successfully was mapped out for him and for anyone willing to become a diligent student of His Holy Scripture.
Bobby believes that everyone can be successful in any endeavor by keeping his primary focus on Christ. It is his sincerest desire to help others understand and apply the Wisdom contained in the Holy Scripture and the absolute importance of a deep and personal relationship with Christ. Jesus told us the key to unlock the Kingdom treasury in Matthew 6:33 (NASB) “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
