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].
How reassuring it is to read the Bible, and it tells you that God sees, our efforts to obey His commands; Doing the things that are pleasing to Him, the labor we put in, with patience and endurance, God is pleased. He is also pleased, when as Christians we don’t tolerate or find excuses for evil people, because we should not have fellowship with the unfruitful work of darkness but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5:11). What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? (2 Corinthians 6:14).
God loves when we study the Bible to show ourselves approved, to rightly divide His word of truth, not ours, and not be ashamed to tell it like it is(2 Timothy 2:15). Studying, enables us to examine the claims of those who say, they are apostles but are not, then you will discover that they are liars, God also makes a note of it when we patiently suffer for Him without quitting (Revelation 2:2-3).
God’s word tells us in the Bible, “Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience; be not ye partakers of them” (Ephesians 5:6-7). When you are a child of God, especially for a while, you know Our Heavenly Father sees, and knows everything, I just love when He praises, and compliments us before He tells us our faults, and issues that displeases Him.
What displeases God the most, is to see His children’s love for Him diminish, we don’t love Him like we used to, like when we first received Him. Do you only love Him, because you want something? or is it for show? or the right thing? maybe it’s to impress someone? Now ,if we as humans can tell when someone does not love us, don’t you think Our Heavenly Father, who sees and knows the contents of our hearts, and thoughts will know that the fire, desire, and love behind your praise, thanks, and worship to, and for Him is not authentic(Psalm 44:21; Revelation 2:23). Let’s be real, because He is real, God wants us to go back to how it was when we first received Him, otherwise He has to do something about it(Revelation 2:4-5).
Just do as God asks and requires of us, and we will have the privilege of eating from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:2). God’s word my friends never returns void(Isaiah 55:11); God does not lie, nor is he slack with His promises (Numbers 23:19, 2 Peter 3:9). How shall we escape if we neglect God(Hebrews 2:3). Come on taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the person who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8; Psalm 119:103; 1 Peter 2:3).
We are living in perilous times, and the only person that can help us is God, through His son Jesus Christ. Don’t you want to know Him, you should want to know Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make. To God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people.
