Getting free from the fear of man and desire for social approval

"The way it works is something like this: The believing man is overwhelmed suddenly by a powerful feeling that only God matters; soon this works out into his mental life and conditions all his judgments and all his values. Now he finds himself free from slavery to man's opinions. Soon he learns to love above all else the assurance that he is well pleasing to the Father in heaven. "
"That cry has come down the years and today may remind us that the gospel has the power to deliver men from the tyranny of social approval and make them free to do the will of God."
