Good morning everyone. I had one of those life shaking question hit my spirit; are you living for an audience of one? That fueled the message today. Just hang in there with me and you will get to answer the question I just had to answer myself just a little bit ago. It’s the title of the message so get ready.


Today’s Prayer


    Father, “You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, I will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the  midst of the sea. Though its waters roar and be troubled. Though the mountains shake with its swelling (Psalm 46:1).” For You, O God, are with me. God, I pray for the people around the world who have hit by the greed of those in positions of power. I pray that You will be that ever present help to the Christians affected by these events and that You will draw others to You in their time of trouble, that they may know that You alone are God and worthy of praise and worship, and that they will believe in You and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, that they may be saved and You may be glorified. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.


Let’s eat.


 An Audience of One

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2

    I have a question for you today. What audience do you play to? Each day you are seen by many who will make a judgment about the way you handle yourself among different audiences. Politicians have learned to play to their audiences, customizing messages for the needs of their particular groups. Musicians have learned to play to their audiences. Pastors play to their congregations each Sunday morning. Salesmen play to the audiences who will buy their product.

    Christ has called us to play to one audience – the audience of Himself. When you seek to please any other audience in your life you become susceptible to situational ethics and motivations based on the need for the moment. Your audience becomes a pawn in your hands because you know what they want. Is that wrong? Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t.

       Pure obedience to pleasing God in our lives will always meet the needs of those around us. It is God’s will that you and I love our spouses, provide good services to our customers, and look to the interests of others before ourselves. This will result in meeting many needs of the audiences in our lives.

    However, there are other times when our audiences are asking for something contrary to God’s will. Politicians are often forced to appease their audiences, even though it may go against God’s laws. When we are asked to go with the flow, we discover which audience is most important in our lives. Is it the audience of One, or the audience of many?

    Today, be aware of which audience you are playing to. Ask yourself why you are taking a particular action. Is it to please the audience of One? Or is it to please the audience of others who might negatively impact you should you not play to their tune? God knows the answer before you give it.


Quote of the Day


 If you are living life as if there is no God, you better be right.
