This statement was in my notes today but did not make it in the sermon. Still, I think it is important to consider:
If there is never a time when a conviction conflicts with someone you like, then you probably are not living as the Lord’s servant.
“For am I now trying to persuade people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” – Galatians 1:10
