Pleasing God

From Series: Belief And Behavior, Volume 2

1 Thessalonians 4:1-2  (ID: 1790)

When the Apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonian church, he emphasized that those who know God must live to please Him. Alistair Begg shows us that pleasing God is the guiding principle of balanced Christian behavior. While our standing with God is not based on keeping His commands, if we love Him we will seek to delight Him through our attitudes and actions.


A Life Pleasing to God

1Finally, then, brothers,1 we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. 2For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
