“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together”.(Romans 8:11-17 NKJV).
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.[Ephesians 3:14-19]
Revelation 4:11 says,
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created. God has created all things for His pleasure. Is God getting pleasure from the life we are living?
We often go to God to ask Him for things. How about going to God and say to Him Lord what can I do for You? What can I give you? How can I serve you? Better yet Lord How can I please You?
To please God is to serve Him in His purpose, His will and His desires. For examples:
Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
Love one another like Christ loves us.
Colossians 3:23 says,And whatsoever all of you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
As proverbs 3:6 tells us, acknowledge Him in all our ways. Give Him thanksgivings, praises and worship. Let us not just continue to serve Him, but to serve Him only in ways that that please and give Him pleasure. Amen!
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen.
