Pleasing God


Pleasing God

How can I please God?

We’ve all asked that question at one time or another.

Pleasing God isn’t like being a show dog under the big top spotlight performing tricks to gain the approval of a fickle audience.

Pleasing God isn’t in following rules or regulations which no one has ever been able to fulfill except for Christ alone.

Pleasing God is achieved by a gift: God’s gift to you of faith.  Pleasing God is possible only by trusting Him to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life in you.

Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him  (Hebrews 11:6).

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that is not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).
