The Root of the Problem: Chapter 8 – Peer Pressure (Excerpt)

The Root of the Problem (cover)“For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10).

Who are we going to try to please? If we are trying to please men, then like Paul, we cannot be a servant of Christ. We have to make that choice. To follow the crowd and succumb to peer pressure prevents us from being able to serve the Lord as He demands.

We need to give up the desire for popularity and acceptance from our peers, no matter how old or young we are. The way of Christ is not a popular path. This lesson is repeatedly given throughout the New Testament.
