“Knowing God’s Will and Pleasing Him”
That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. Colossians 1:10-12
To be WORTHY of the Lord, one MUST be EQUAL to the Lord’s STANDARDS. When a person is SAVED they will TRULY GIVE their HEART and LIFE to God. Then they will begin their WALK with the Lord, as a NEW CREATURE, OLD things are gone, and ALL THINGS become NEW. They will experience a TRANSFORMATION of CHARACTER. They will work at becoming Christ-like in their being. They will become HOLY as He is HOLY.
They can accomplish this by: FULLY PLEASING God. In order to PLEASE God, they MUST be FRUITFUL in EVERY good work. They MUST produce FRUIT through their personal testimony of their FAITHFULNESS to God. When they WORK at this, they will GROW in their FAITH more and more. And they will develop a DEEPER KNOWLEDGE of God.
Another way to PLEASE GOD is SPIRITUAL STRENGTH, which comes from KNOWING GOD’S will and PLEASING Him. They can accomplish this SPIRITUAL STRENGTH by; ALLOWING God’s GLORIOUS POWER to work in them, by the WORK of the HOLY SPIRIT, which indwells them.
This SPIRITUAL STRENGTH will produce GREAT ENDURANCE and PATIENCE, which gives them the WILL to NOT GIVE UP, or NOT to ACT HASTILY, but to be LONG-SUFFERING and CALM, while in the midst of turmoil and strife.
The Apostle Paul indicates that the TRUE BELIEVER should, “Give THANKS in ALL circumstances. Then they can become PARTAKERS, with other saints, in the INHERITANCE that has been laid up for them, in Heaven. Is this YOUR destiny?
Or are you HEADED for an ETERNITY in HELL, the place of UNENDING, torment, torture, heartache, pain, agony and despair? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then this is YOUR destiny. Because, you are NOT PLEASING to Him. You are NOT one of His TRUE CHILDREN. But you could be, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING, your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and KNOW GOD’S WILL by PLEASING HIM. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
