DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT FEBRUARY 7TH, 2024
Dale Earnhardt Jr. said about his father and namesake, the famous NASCAR driver, “You wanted to please him all the time, make him happy.” That’s the way most of us feel about someone we admire. But sometimes we forget that our greatest satisfaction in life comes from pleasing our Heavenly Savior.
Just as Jesus focused on pleasing His Father, we should strive to please Him by living with virtue. Peter told us to add to our faith, virtue; and to virtue, knowledge (2 Peter 1:5). That involves having the attitudes and actions that please the Lord. Ephesians 5:10 says: “And find out what pleases the Lord” (NIV). Colossians 1:10 tells us to “live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God” (NIV).
Ask the Lord today to enable you to please Him in every thought, deed, habit, and word.
Every Christian should have a passion to please God. We are to delight in honoring Him. It is our greatest pleasure to please our Redeemer.
