Anything You Do In An Attempt To Please God Will Not Go Unrewarded..!
God Is In Constant Pursuit of Relationships.
The Bible is a relationship manual. The Scriptures are full of people that did not know how to get along with God. Isaiah 1:18 says, “Come now, and let us reason together…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” God wants to be a part of the healing and the restoration of our life. God Had A Son But He Wanted A Family; He Sowed His Son To Create His Family.
The purpose of any relationship is completion…addition. Somebody has something you are missing.
God Holds The Missing Pieces of Your Life. Make a commitment to God. He made one to you in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ. Calvary was commitment. The Blood and Cross of Jesus was commitment. Gethsemane was commitment. Getting along with God will require spending time in His Presence. The Price of God’s Presence Is Time…In It.
7 Things That Are Truly Important To God…
1 His Word. The Word of God Is The Wisdom of God. If you are going to get along with God, you are going to have to know what He says. Read The Word of God. Memorize The Word of God. Live The Word of God. Believe The Word of God. (See Hosea 4:6).
2 Servanthood. Treat those around you equal to the way you treat yourself or the way you would want to be treated. Servanthood is raising another person to a higher standard. (See Luke 10:25-28.)
3 Obedience. Never Expect God To Respect Your Prayers When You Have Ignored His Instructions.
4 Protocol. Every Environment Requires A Code of Conduct For Entering or Remaining In It. Honoring the rules of the house is important to God. The Book of Ezekiel refers to it as The Law of the House. (See Ezekiel 43:12.) The purpose of protocol and procedure is to convey importance and identify Difference.
5 Love. The most powerful force in the world is love. (See 1 Corinthians 13:13.) Love breaks through barricades. To love someone is to place high value on them.
6 Worship. Songs of worship please The Holy Spirit. (See Psalm 100:2.) Worship through singing. Build your day around singing in The Spirit. Sing The Word of God aloud. Let His Word cleanse you as you sing it.
7 Faith. Don’t you appreciate it when others trust you? Don’t you feel humiliated and a bit angry when they show lack of trust? Then you know how God feels about your faith in Him! God wants you to believe every word He speaks to you. Your faith pleases Him.
