Welcome to Hope Talk
Pleasing God is the joy of a justified believer. Because we are in Jesus, positionally we have a relationship that is procured by Jesus having paid for our salvation. Paul though, tells us to live a life that is pleasing to God. (1Th.4:1-2) Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus. I thought that Jesus totally pleases God for us. He does but He also wants our lives to coincide with that truth. There are several other passages of Scripture to help in your study of this… (1Cor.7:32-33; 2Cor.5:9; Col.3:20; 1Th.2:4; Col.1:10; 1Tim.2:1-3; 5:4) and how does this lifestyle of pleasing God occur? Through faith… Heb.11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. We believe in God and so live a life that is pleasing to Him as it pours from a transformed soul. You do not need to work your way into heaven or into God’s family, that is done, but the encouragement of the Scripture is to live out what you are before God.
We are all of certain families (last names) and we are accepted with certain people and also rejected by others because of that truth. How we live ought to be in conjunction with our heavenly name and family, not our earthly one. Live out your earthly life by what is already true in your eternal life. It does not make you more accepted by God, but the world learns Who He is by His children’s actions and attitudes and this pleases Him.
