and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. – Romans 8:8
Ephesians 2:3 says that we are naturally children of wrath living in the lust of the flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and mind. In this state we are incapable of pleasing God. If we come by sin naturally how can we please God? Through faith in Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:6 – “And 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 seek Him.” We must believe that Jesus is God and seek Him. So let’s make it our ambition to please God. 2 Corinthians 5:9 – “Therefore we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.”
Love Him, seek Him, please Him. My hope for the New year. Making it my ambition.
Continually seeking Him,
