“Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously
given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who
invited us to God. The best invitation we ever received!” 2 Peter 1:3 The Message
What a great reminder today that it’s not what we “do” that pleases God, but that we know and love His son Jesus. That’s good news!
Interestingly enough, as I write this, I just received a visit at my door by a Jehovah’s witness. They handed me a booklet on what the Bible really teaches. It’s a list of extra things we must do to please God. How sad.
I’m so glad that my hope is in Christ alone and not in my ability to please God. Let’s pass this invitation along to those who are not already at the party.
