Many times, you will hear your parents and your pastors and teachers at church talk about pleasing God. What that means is to trust in God’s plan for our lives, and obey Him (Prov. 3:5-6, I Peter 4:1).
The LORD makes His plan for us simple to understand (2 Cor. 11:3). He wants us to know how to please Him, because He loves us and wants to bless us with a wonderful life in every way (Jer. 29:11)!
The first step is this: To believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and ask Him to forgive and cleanse us, and come in our hearts and be our Savior and LORD. That is the only way any person can truly please God and get into Heaven (John 3:16).
Just like our parents are pleased with and love us because we are born into their family, God is pleased with us when we are born again through believing in His Son Jesus.
After that, we please the LORD and earn rewards by spending time with Him, trusting and obeying Him, and loving others. We will talk about these in parts 2 and 3.
How are some ways that you already know you please God?
