Control Bible Verses
But Peter and the apostles replied,
“We must obey God rather than any human authority”.
But you are not controlled by your sinful nature.
You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the
Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those
who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them
do not belong to him at all.)
1 Corinthians 4:3-4
As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated
by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my
own judgment on this point. My conscience is
clear, but that doesn’t prove I’m right. It
is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide.
2 Corinthians 5:14
Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we
believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that
we have all died to our old life.
Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people,
but of God. If pleasing people were my goal,
I would not be Christ’s servant.
Then the way you live will always honor and please
the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind
of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you
learn to know God better and better.
1 Thessalonians 2:4
For we speak as messengers approved by God to
be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is
to please God, not people. He alone examines
the motives of our hearts.
