Teaching 3 : How To Please God ~ Part II

January 10, 2012

Continue from the teaching lesson 2 on 8th of  January 2012.

Lord Jesus, to you with my love

There are some more ways by which we can please God :

  • We please God when we praise Him.

      God delight in the praises of His people. He said, ” Whoso offer praise glorifies Me. ”  God is pleased when His people praise Him. David said,

” I will praise the name of God with a song,

and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

This also shall please the Lord better than

( a sacrifice of ) an ox or bullock … “

PSALM 69:30,31 

  • We please God when we are thankful.

     God loves to give good gifts to His children, and He is pleased when they thank Him. The Bible says,

” In all everything give thanks :

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. ” 

~ I THESSALONIANS 5:18 ~

  • We please God when we spend time with Him each day in prayer and the study of His Word.

     God desires to have daily fellowship with His children. His pleased when we take time to meet with Him to study His word and to pray to Him. In His Word, God says,

” Blessed is the man that hears Me,

watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. “

~ PROVERBS 8:34 ~

Note: I would encourage every Christian should establish a daily Quiet Time – a time set aside for the study of God’s Word and for prayer. 

  •  We please God when we grow as Christians.

     Every believer begins his Christian life as a ” newborn babe” in God’s family. A newborn baby brings joy and delight to its parents, but if that baby does not grow and mature properly, the parents’ joy is turned to sadness and grief. How tragic it is when a child remains a baby in thought and actions instead of growing into maturity.

 God is likewise saddened and disappointed when one of His newborn babes fails to grow and mature. To please the Lord we must grow in our Christian life. The Bible says,

 ” Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

~ 2 Peter 3:18 ~ 

     God has provided the food that we need for growing spiritually. That food is His word. The bible says,

 ” Like newborn babes, crave pure spiritual milk,

so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.”

~ 1 PETER 2:2 ~
