What Pleases God?

Thought For Today: “What Pleases God?”

What does it take to please God?

Some people think it’s through rituals: chant certain prayers, pray over certain things, light incense or candles, or the like. But that’s not what the Bible says.

Others think it’s through following rules and regulations. We make a list of what we’re supposed to do and not to do, and if we do all the “to Do’s” and don’t do any of the “Do Not’s,” then God says we’re okay. But that’s not what the Bible says.

Then there are those who think that we please God through religious observances. That we observe certain holy days, or attend certain religious events, then we’ll religious enough to hear God says we’re okay. But that’s not what the Bible says.

What does the Bible say?

“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.” (Hebrews 11:6)

The Bible says is that God isn’t interested in rituals, rules, regulations, or religion. Instead, God is interested in relationships, and that it’s impossible to please God unless we possess this one thing, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and such a relationship comes by faith in the God of the Bible.
