"The other reason the love of human glory is contradictory to faith is that faith is a drinking of living water for the satisfaction of our souls. And the well of that water is the glory of Christ. And when we are satisfied with him, the enslaving power of the craving for human glory is broken. Broken by the power of a superior satisfaction.

When you have tasted the beauty of God and the approval of God in Christ, the addiction to human approval is broken. And you are free.

May God open your eyes to the glory of Christ and awaken a spiritual taste for his living water, and give you faith, and set you free." - John Piper
