2019 – SATURDAY 11 MAY
WELL PLEASING TO GOD
2 Corinthians 5:9
Therefore we make it our aim, whether in public or in private, to be well pleasing to Him.
There are growing levels in our relationship with Jesus.
Servant – called to serve
Friend – embraced as friend
Bride – joined as one
Wife – pleasing to Him
Our greatest desire is to please our beloved.
NO PRIVATE LIVES
Paul declares whether in public or in private our single aim must be to live pleasing to the Lord.
Living to perform and please our crowd – is bound for failure.
Secret issues will always manifest if not addressed.
The higher the position – the greater the cost.
MAKE IT YOUR AIM
To live well pleasing to God
To be transparent before all
To forgive quickly
To forbear with others
To stay the path of faith
To redeem others
To humble yourself before Him
To acknowledge failure
To be restored and forgiven
To love unconditionally
IN ALL THESE THINGS
There are many parts to our lives. Some we don’t handle as well as others.
Yet in all these things Christ is our strength and victory.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
AIM TO PLEASE HIM IN ALL THINGS – BECAUSE ALL THINGS DO WORK TOGETHER
