Some never rock the boat.
They avoid confrontation at any cost.
These individuals tell others only what they want to hear.
We want to be agreeable. We want to be accepted but at times we must risk rejection.
At times, we must lovingly offer advice and words of correction.
There is only one ‘Yes Man’ that rightfully fills the role.
Jesus does not say yes to keep the peace.
He says ‘Yes’ to the Father’s promises!
“For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, by me, Silvanus, and Timothy, was not ‘Yes’ and ‘No,’ but has proved to be ‘Yes’ in Him [true and faithful, the divine ‘Yes’ affirming God’s promises]. For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] ‘Yes.’ So through Him we say our ‘Amen’ to the glory of God (2 Corinthians 1:19-20 AMP).”
He says ‘yes’ and we say, Amen.
