#4850 – Pleasing God

Good morning people who live a life worthy of the Lord.

Colossians 1:9-10 NIV For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.

Oh how I long for this to be the testimony of my life, not only here on earth, but also in heaven!

Our lives are not to be lived for the pleasure and priority of self. This has never got anyone into favour with God. Pleasing God is not synonymous with self-centred decisions.

So, how do we live a life worthy of God and please Him in every way?

We listen to the wisdom and the understanding that the Spirit gives so that we know God’s will. It’s only in doing God’s will – what He authored for us to do – that we please and honour our Father in heaven.
