PM: “Pleasing the Lord”

Text: II Corinthians 5:1-21

  1. We know this life is temporal for us all
    1. We know this fleshly body will not last forever
    2. We know our bodies are falling apart
    3. We know the Holy Spirit is our guarantee of an eternal body
  2. We know we can have confidence in pleasing God
    1. By walking by faith while we are here on earth
    2. By desiring to be in the presence of the Lord
    3. By laboring with the Lord to Honor Him
    4. By pleasing the Lord preparing for our accountability to Him
  3. We know we have a greater purpose than living life
    1. We are persuaded to persuade others with truth
    2. We are motivated by Christ’s love to offer others life
    3. We are new in Christ to minister newness to others
    4. We are representatives for Christ to others on earth.
  • Action Points:
    • What needs to change in your temporal life to not prevent you from God’s eternal will for your life?
    • Are you confident that you are pleasing God in the life you are living here on earth?
    • How do you see that you are fulfilling God’s purpose for your life as His child on earth?
