Just to Please God

This afternoon I had a meeting with one of our future leaders, and in the course of the conversation I realized just how incredible God is and how He changes hearts radically.

As she told me about all the decisions that she and her family are making, there was a common theme:  we are doing it to please God.  She mentioned thing after thing:  tithing, getting married after years of simply living together, being faithful in attending services, growing as leaders…all huge decisions for these new Christians, but for one reason and one reason only:  because they want to please God.

Wow…I want that to be said of every action in my life.  I don’t do the things I do because it’s the way they have always been done, or because I have been taught that they should be done a certain way.  I don’t even want to do it because I’m told I have to.  I get up in the morning, I spend time with people, I serve in the church, I reach out to people in the street and everywhere I go for one reason and one reason only:  because I want to please God.

Tonight when I enter God’s presence, I will be reminded of my first love.  I will be reminded of the whole reason I am here in this world:  just to please God.
