Word of the Day... January 17, 2013

Live to Please God
Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. 1Thess.4:1

We make a huge mistake when we try to determine how close we can live to the world and still be a Christian. People want us to set guidelines for what is right and wrong, or what is sinful and what is not, so they can live on the edge. With one foot in the world, and one foot in the church.

I don't believe the real issue is trying to walk a fine line between what is right and wrong. The real issue is, “does the way that I live my life please the Lord?” This should be the basis upon which we judge how we should live our life. Would God be pleased with my doing this? Is this something I would want to be doing when Jesus comes again for the church? Would I feel comfortable doing this with Jesus?

Jesus said," I always do those things that please” the Father ( John8:29). I think that's a great standard! Our chief desire should always be to please God. I hope that  that you go out there and have a Simply Heavenly Day!!!  God bless you!!! :):)
