Pleasing God

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

Do you realize that the choices we make either please or displease God.   The Apostle Paul wrote:

“We ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God…”  1Thessalonians 4:1    

Every choice you make, every step you take has an eternal impact.  So reflect on how you are living.  Are you living for your own desires and fulfillment? 

Paul says, there are two ways to please God in your living.  First, put off the sexual immorlity and control your own body.  Get rid of the lust, the impurity and stop leading others astray into immorality.  Trash the internet pornography and shutdown the filthy movies.  Stop living with someone outside of marriage and stop the immoral sexual relationships.  It is all immoral in God’s eyes and all displeasing to Him. 

The second is positive.  Love your Christian brother and sister in Christ without fail.  Don’t let anger, unforgiveness or selfishness get in the way of pleasing God by loving one another. 

When you do these two things, Paul says, you will indeed please God!
