Seek honor and praise from God and not people.
This book will help you to stop being motivated by the approval of others and instead start living for the validation that comes from God alone.
Respected author and theologian R. T. Kendall shares a profound revelation of the meaning of John 5:44, the scripture that has guided his life for more than sixty years. Early in his ministry the wise counsel of two mentors brought this scripture to light, and he has determined to live by it ever since. Now he passes on the same wise counsel to his readers.
In For an Audience of One, Kendall explores what it means to truly live for Christ alone. Many Christians believe in God and claim that Jesus is their Lord and Savior, but sadly their actions betray them. They are more concerned about the approval of people. They avoid truly following God's leading or taking a bold stand for righteousness if they fear they might lose a friend. Because they are more worried about what people think than what God thinks, they miss out on what God is doing.
It's time to learn what a life truly surrendered to God—and God alone—looks like. Readers can live the life He has purposed for them! They can stop being motivated by fear of others and addicted to their approval. For an Audience of One shows readers how to start living for the honor and praise that comes from God alone!

The title of this book should help you to see what this book is about. Basically the idea is that we should live our lives for an audience of One. Everything we say, everything we do, everything we think - we should keep God in mind. He knows all. And He knows our motives. So even if we do the right thing, we might need to question “why” we are doing it. We should live for His glory alone, and not seek the glory of people… In a word, this book is outstanding. This book is now among my all-time favorites. I highly recommend it for all Christians. And really for anyone. This book will help believers and nonbelievers alike to think about their lives and their actions. One way to tell how valuable a book is, is to ask the question - Did this book change me for the better? If you can say yes, then the book is well worth the read. And this book most definitely falls into that category.
