But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
In this age of the social gospel,we are told to please we must feed the world, right? How do we know when we please God? Is it after we've fed a hundred, two hundred?
Praise the Lord, He gave us a pure gospel. Not a conditional list of works we must perform. No. God sent Jesus that whoever believe on Him would have eternal life.
To please God, you gotta have faith. That unseen substance where you know. You know God is the Creator. God sent His Son, Jesus, to provide a way back for the sons and daughters of Adam into fellowship with the Lord of Lords.
You'll not get there by doing good things.
But when you come to Him and fellowship with the Lord, He will lead you into good works. But the reward comes from seeking Him. Diligently seeking Him. For we are here to praise and worship Him. For no other is worthy of praise.
Hunger to know Him. To seek Him. And you will be rewarded.
Walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. Even 'good works' are but filthy rags when done in the flesh.
Have faith and know that He will reward you as you seek Him with your whole heart, mind, and soul.
Seek God not the ways or wisdom of man.
