Five Things That Bring God Pleasure
Day 6: Weekly Truth
Jonathan Draper

“For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:8-10, ESV)
“For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4, ESV)

As we have looked at things that bring God pleasure, we can appreciate how the Lord delights in simple obedience. As sinners saved by matchless grace, what a blessing it is that we can serve our Lord and our God. He delights in, among other things, our obedience, our worship, our baptism, our humility, and our prayer.

If we’re going to live our lives in a way that pleases the Father, we are going to have to be intentional about it. We are not just going to fall into good habits, but rather will need to make a plan of action. Obedience is something that takes work and effort, but as Christians, this work is not drudgery but a privilege. We serve a God who desires to have a relationship with us, who cares for us, and has a plan for us. What a joy it is to be able to do things that bring Him pleasure.
