5/29 Pleasing God

Rom 8:8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.

By virtue of being of the Spirit and being in the Spirit, you are pleasing to God! Yes, pleasing to God. Abiding in the Spirit, you do the will of God. This means, as you live in the love of God, exhibiting his love, you are pleasing to God.

What could be simpler? You just do what comes natural to the Spirit or better said, do the supernatural. It is supernatural to love like Christ and this by his Spirit. But is natural to you. This is who you are and what you do. It is your profession. Punch the clock and go to work doing what you do, because of who you are in Jesus.

You are pleasing to God, all the mess ups and failures…He is excited about you! Tell him thanks and smile!
