My Audience of One
People tend to worry about what others think about them. The need for acceptance plays a powerful influence on thoughts and feelings, sometimes causing anxiety, codependence and depression. Social media can fuel these harmful thoughts. Friend, Jesus should be our audience of One. He Loves us! Only HE matters. Are we giving Jesus the same amount of time as we do social media? sports? fill-in-the-blank? We have two natures – the “old man”(before accepting Christ) and the “new man”(after accepting Christ) – whichever nature you feed the most controls you. God gave us free will; it’s our choice how we spend each day.
Idols are not necessarily little statues. The Bible calls anything or anyone we put above God an idol. Our jealous God wants all of us -- our time, talents and treasures; our praise, prayers, plans and for us to get rid of our pride. It’s not about what He can do for us, but about what we will do for Him because of what He’s already done for us. Nowhere in the Bible does it say, “Hey, only some of you have to live for Me and share My Word.” Nope, each and every one of us were bought with a price!
1John 2:16 - “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” Romans 1:22-23 – “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, … "
Song Lyrics: “I come on my knees to lay down before You, bringing all that I am, longing only to know You. Seeking Your face and not only Your hand, I find You embracing me just as I am. And I lift these songs to You and You alone. As I sing to You, in my praises make Your home. To my audience of one, You are Father, and You are Son. As your Spirit flows free, let it find within me a heart that beats to praise You. And now just to know You more has become my great reward; to see Your kingdom come and Your will be done! I only desire to be Yours, Lord, so what could I bring to honor Your majesty? What song could I sing that would move the heart of royalty? And all that I have is the life that You've given me, so Lord let me live for You my song with humility. And Lord as the love song of my life is played, I have one desire: To bring glory to Your name. To my audience of One.”
Psalms 35:28 - “And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.” Psalms 115:1 - “Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.”
Our hearts beat to praise and glorify the name of Jesus, our audience of One!
