When the great ‘Welsh Revival’ was in progress some years ago its human leader, Evan Roberts, on one occasion suddenly & quietly left the service, simply because the curiosity & expectancy concerning him was very distasteful to his consecrated soul.
Then a godly young woman arose & exclaimed, "Whom are you after, Evan Roberts or Jesus?"
And the meeting proved more than ordinarily successful because only the glory of God was sought.
Truly, our constant aim should be "that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ." (1 Pet 4:11)

Acts 12:23 (NLT): “Instantly, an angel of the Lord struck Herod with a sickness, because he accepted the people’s worship instead of giving the glory to God. So he was consumed with worms and died.”
“Our lifestyle, language, attitudes, and manner of dress reflect on His name. Unless you are honestly convinced that the thing in question will bring glory to God, then don't do it.” - Curtis Hutson.
