We’re not jealous of anyone

We’re not envious at anyone’s popularity or apparent success in christendom. BUT we can only rejoice when a person has success or popularity BY FOLLOWING JESUS. How could we rejoice in anything less? The LORD knows our hearts that this is so.

I doubt that following Jesus will bring us to a place of popularity, but anything is possible with God.

    If we can’t rejoice in what a person does and teaches, then we can’t rejoice when they have ‘success’.

    If we can rejoice in a brother or sister’s life and testimony then we rejoice regardless of whether they are ‘successful’ or not.

    Approved, approve, approval:

    Rom 16:10 Greet Apelles approved in Christ.


    From G1380; properly acceptable (current after assayal), that is, approved: – approved, tried.

    And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more

    in knowledge and in all judgment;

    That you may approve things that are excellent;

    that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ;

    (Philippians 1:9-10)
