Please God (2)

Yesterday we talked about pleasing God. We said that Jesus did everything to please God. And we, too, should do things that please God. So how can we please God?
First, we need to believe. Verse 6 of our Bible Reading today says, “Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who sincerely try to find him.” If we want to please God, we must first believe in Him. We must also believe that we have sinned and need to be saved through Jesus.
Second, we need to honor God. God must be the most important thing in our lives. 1 Corinthians 10:31b says that everything we do, we should do “to the glory of God.”
Finally, we need to obey God’s commands. 1 John 5:3a tells us, “Loving God means obeying his commands.” I encourage you to do these things today.
