Today’s Truth: Living to Please the Lord

Our goal in this life is to please the Lord. Whatever we do, it should be as a representative of God living to please Him as it says in Colossians 3:17: “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” We should represent God in our actions and words, living to please Him and bring Him honor.

While it can be difficult to please the Lord in our human flesh, it is possible. We live in an earthly body, but we are still a spiritual being, created in the image of God. 2 Corinthians 5:9-10 says, “So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.”

We should desire to please Him because of what He has done in our lives. We should look forward to eternity and know that we will be judged according to our actions. We will all stand before the Lord. Live your life as if you are striving to please your Heavenly Father.
