PLEASING GOD FOR 2014

Our desires,goals,and aspirations from now on,should be to please God in every way possible,with every fiber of our being,that He is so happy with us,that like Job,He can say have you considered my servant………….(insert your name),who is holy,righteous,devoted,and obedient. Or better yet this is my beloved servant in whom I am well pleased. Proverbs 16:7 says,”When a man’s ways please the Lord,He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him”. Is this impossible ? No ,it isn’t there are people in the Bible who did,and people alive today ,who are living lifestyles that’s pleasing to God. Are you one of them? How do we live a life that pleases God. The joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10)which simple means that when God is pleased,with us we are strong in every aspect of our lives. So how do we get God to be pleased and joyful .Romans 12:1-2 says,”I beseech you therefore,brethren,by the mercies of God,that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,holy,acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect,will of God”. However,1 Corinthians 3:16-17 says,”Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God,him shall God destroy, for the temple of God is holy,which temple ye are”. Then Ephesians 4:22-32 advises us to ,put off concerning the former conversation the old self,which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,and that ye put on the new man or self,which after God is created in righteousness,and true holiness. Wherefore,putting away lying,speak every man truth with his neighbor,for ye are members one of another. Be angry and sin not,let not the sun go down on your wrath ,neither give place to the devil…let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth,but that which is good to the use of edifying,that it may minister grace unto the hearers.. And grieve not the Holy Spirit,by whom ye are sealed unto the day of redemption… Ephesians 5 says,”Be ye,therefore,followers of God,as dear children,and walk in love,as Christ hath loved us..then it gives us a list of things we should avoid doing as children of God. If we obey God’s word we will have no problem pleasing God. Do you have a relationship with God,and desire to please Him? Just read His word and obey all His commands. Do you want to know God,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and allow Him,to introduce Himself to you.”He hath shown thee,O man what is good,and what doth the Lord require of thee,but to do justly,and to love mercy,and to walk humbly with thy God?”[Micah 6:8].
