In part 1, we determined that the first step to pleasing God is believing in Jesus as our Savior and LORD. We can never please God with anything else we do, until we become born again by agreeing with what Jesus did for us on the cross (John 3:16).
So if you haven’t yet asked Jesus to be your Savior and LORD, you can ask Him right now! Then you will please Him by being born again into His royal family, and you can start earning rewards by pleasing Him with your good behavior. This is very much like obeying your parents and earning special blessings or an allowance or something–but you have to be born into their family first, because you have to be their children that they love and care for and give you chances to earn rewards.
The more you get to know Jesus, the more you will love Him, for He will become your very best friend. As you do things like pray, read His Word, and worship Him, you will want to do them because you love Him, not just to earn blessings!
He will show you ways to earn blessings and love others so they can know Him too.
What ways can you think of to bless those you know?
