There are many ways man comes up with that he thinks is a way to please God. When in doubt, always refer back to the word of God and rely on the Holy Ghost to speak to your hearts.
Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. God has given to all of us a measure of faith, (Rom. 12:3).
Your faith in him, his Son Jesus Christ is that faith you must maintain through out your walk with Christ. Keep the faith in His word that He has spoken to your heart through His word. (Rom. 3:4) “let God be true, but every man a liar…;” We can let God be true by standing on his word, standing on his promises no matter what man might say or how things may look. If God says “you are bless” then you are blessed. God thinks highly of us even before we decided to serve him; Jere. 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
We sometimes wonder why God thinks so highly of us. How could He or would He love us so much after all that we have done and will do. Isa. 55:8&9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.— For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Basically, our criteria for loving someone or accepting someone is flawed and can not measure up to what God’s love is for man kind. To change our way of loving is to believe in his word and read how he loved us through all our flaws and mistakes. The kind of love that can not be affected by external factors but it is made steadfast in our hearts by the word of God.
God will continue to love us; Rom. 5:8 But God commanded his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
We can please God by looking at the life of Jesus; Seeing how He conducted himself while here on earth. He demonstrated true love; Love was the foundation of his ministry. “By this others will know that you are my disciples if ye have love for one another.”
