Hebrews 11:6 – Verse of the Day 4/16/14
The Bible teaches us that God is a spirit, infinite, eternal and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth. (WSC, Q.4) How could we ever please such a God? Naturally there is no way that we could.
But the amazing thing is that God is pleased with us because of the work that He has done in us through faith in Christ. Without faith it is impossible to please God, but with faith nothing is impossible. In fact, God is very pleased with us when we turn to Him and seek Him!
A lot of the time it is easier for us to know this in our heads than it is to know it in our hearts. We feel like nothing we do could ever please God. But for the Christian, it is a lie to believe this about ourselves. When we seek God and try to honor Him with our lives, God is very pleased with our efforts to live for Him, no matter how much we fall short. Spend some time in prayer, thanking God for his infinite love and grace to save us and to reward us in this amazing way.
