Do You Want To Please God?
 

Yes, all of us wanted to do that. Sometimes! we give into pleasing ourselves more than God. But nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The following are some tools to please God

1. Faith

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Today, do we believe that God rewards us when we earnestly seek Him?

2. Obedience

2 Timothy 2:4
No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs--he wants to please his commanding officer.

Is God our commanding officer in our life as a disciple?

3. Singing

Psalm 69:30-31
30 I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
31 This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.


Keeping singing songs....

4. Giving

Hebrews 13:16
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Is there any plan for us to do anything today?

5. Being Pure

Proverbs 15:26
The Lord detests the thoughts of the wicked, but those of the pure are pleasing to Him.

Romans 8:8
Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.

Let us decide to be pure in our thoughts.

6. Caring For Our Own Family

1 Timothy 5:4
But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.

Are we caring for our immediate family?

Serving With RPJ

Romans 14:17-18
17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of Righteousness, Peace and J oy in the Holy Spirit,
18 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.


How can we say we are pleasing God in every way?
1. By bearing fruit in every good work
2. By growing in the knowledge of God
3. Endurance b. Patience
4. By joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the Kingdom of light.

Colossians 1:10-12
10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully
12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.


2 Corinthians 5:9
So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
