“But Peter and the apostles answered ‘We must obey God rather than man.’ Acts 5:29
I remember Os Guiness saying that a life lived listening to the decisive call of God is a life lived before the only Audience that matters: the “Audience of One.” As a Christian, I believe that we ultimately have One to whom we must give account, one Judge before whom we all must stand.
The pull of the masses is strong with its allure of popularity, celebrity, power, and pleasure. But it is all fool’s gold. The disciples of Jesus were so radically consumed by the call of God that it did not matter what they were threatened with, whether imprisonment, beatings, or even death… they lived before an Audience of One.
When God smiles upon you, neither the smiles nor frowns of man can affect you…
How would your life change if you began living before the Audience of One?
