TITLE: Coming to Terms with Approva-holism

This is a self-help article written to help folks recognize the problem of seeking approval from the wrong sources.
"Let us not be desirous of vain glory," (Galatians 5:26a KJV)

If I belonged to an AA program, mine would have to be Approva-holics Anonymous. Why? Because at my ripe old age (which I decline to divulge) I've come to an uncomfortable conclusion: in this flesh I will always be tempted to compromise something I believe in, or a part of who I am in order to imbibe in the seductive spirits of human approval. Whether or not I stop being intoxicated with gaining approval at any cost doesn't change my natural proclivity towards this awful addiction. I confess humbly and without hesitation, "I am an approva-holic," knowing full well that God cannot fix what I do not acknowledge.

Upon confession of what I am in the flesh, and acceptance by grace of who I am in Jesus, God's remedy in Christ takes immediate effect and the stronghold of illegitimate approval is broken. I may still fall off the wagon trying to gain approval in destructive ways, but God's remedy will always remain the same: acknowledge the problem, confess what I am in the flesh, accept who I am in Christ, and find genuine approval in Him.

As Christians whose lives are hid with Christ, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus, no matter what the cost. Our confidence must be grounded in Christ and His Word alone, and remain firm.
"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another," (Galatians 5:25-26 KJV). In short, we must learn to desire God's glory above all else.
