I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I can do to please and bring honor to our Lord. Here is a short list that I have started.
1. By exalting Jesus Christ, His Son (Matt 3:17; Col 1:15-19)
2. By proclaiming the message of the cross (I Cor 1:18-2:5)
3. By believing in God and his promises (Heb 11:6)
4. By asking for wisdom (1 Kings 3:10, Col 1:9-14; James 1:5-8)
5. By staying away from sexual sin (Eph 5:3,4,10; 1 Thes 4:1-8)
6. By sharing the gospel with unbelievers (I Cor 9:14-27, 10:31-33)
7. By giving to others in time of need (Phil 4:10-20; Heb 13:16)
8. By submitting to authority (Rom 8:7-8, Col 3:20; 1 John 3:22)
9. By praising God for all things (Ps 69:30-31; Heb 13:15-16)
Dear Lord, help us to focus on how we can please You. We thank You for Your word that gives us the guidelines that we can follow to please You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
