7 Ways to Please God - Life, Hope & Truth
You are serving the Lord Christ. So how exactly does God want us to use our talents for Him? Two ways: blessing others and building His kingdom. Now, in that context, Peter was specifically talking about spiritual gifts like prophecy and healing. He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!
And I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings who were before you has possessed nor those who will come after you. See, I have gained five more talents. See, I have gained two more talents. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master. See, you have what is yours. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Are you not worth much more than they? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
You of little faith! The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it,. When they heard this, they quieted down and glorified God, saying, "Well then, God has granted to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life.

I went through a serious of unfortunate events while growing up in a Christian household and made so many bad choices. I certainly reaped the evil things I did. Very true how we can loose our inheritance for the bad choices we make, but more true that God always opens his arms for us and his hand is never too short. Amen and Amen! Thank you so much for your response! God is always there with opened arms waiting for us to come back home to Him…. There is nothing we can do that God wont forgive if we truly ask Him to!
Praise God it is by faith alone, through grace alone, amen!? God bless you too! Praying God reveals Himself in a powerful way as you continue to drive deep into His Word. Thank you so much for your response.
How Bad Choices Will Mess Up Your Destiny
I pray God continues to encourage you and bless you in your walk with Him. I made some bad decisions in my marriage and we are headed to divorce court.. I believe with my whole heart that Satan attacked my marriage and destroyed it.. He attacked me personally and won…. I will always live with the regret and guilt.. Satan is very sneaky… I will be more vigilant of him now..
Hopefully my children will not be too badly affected by all of this… They are very young still… Just babies. The truth is, we all make mistakes. Some just greater than others. Before I surrendered my life to Jesus…I made so many bad choices…I even got pregnant during my party lifestyle and lived so recklessly using drugs, being an alcoholic, promiscuous, you name it. And when I finally repented and asked God for forgiveness and laid all that sin down at the foot of the cross. He changed me completely. He broke all my addictions to drugs, alcohol, even pornography, and completely changed my life.
For example, smoking cigarettes I used to be such a heavy smoker back in the day. If I never quit smoking…. And that goes for all sin no matter what it is. Being a single mom to a dad that wanted nothing to do with me or our son was so hard! I even have health issues now from the bad choices I made so many years ago. So let me tell you first hand…be encouraged…nothing is impossible with God. Jesus Christ is more powerful than satan and He will give you power over sin if you ask Him to.
There is always hope with Jesus no matter how hopeless it seems. He takes our messes…what the enemy intends for evil…and can turn it all around for good! Genesis The only way to defeat satan and overcome temptations are by the power of the Holy Spirit and the name of Jesus Christ. My advice would be to:. Hebrews Pray — really pour out your heart to God and I promise you…He will listen to you and answer you according to His perfect will. Jeremiah Read the Bible every single day.

I cannot stress enough how important reading the Bible is to your life. Through daily bible reading you will be refreshed, revived, delivered, encouraged, strengthened, etc. Living a life of full surrender.
I know this is a lot to take in but I just want to encouraged you to keep pressing on. God is with you and will help you. To be honest from your article one may take it as they have more power over the sovereign power of God if they were to sell for second best. Thank you so much for your comment.
When you surrender your life to Jesus Christ and repent from your sins, you now have the assurance of eternal salvation. Now God once He has you…will begin a work deep within your heart and life. He will change you from the inside out…as you read the Bible, pray, attend church, etc. God wants you to ask Him before you choose to do anything! Again, once we choose to follow Jesus we will face temptations, trials, tests, and have choices to make because God has given us a free will. This power…is stronger than temptation, the devil, and when we ask for it….
God almighty enables you to resist that temptation and not give into it. But you must also chose to walk away…to flee…to get out of there as well. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.
When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. But, the urge to sin is still there. And sometimes, we do give in. But the choice does have a cause and effect. A consequence. I chose to get drunk and not rely of His strength to flee from that temptation. Or, He wanted me to share my faith with someone at work and they get saved.
Does that kind of make sense? Or, what if in that car accident I was driving drunk in…I end up dying. There goes my whole life here on earth and all the plans God had for me. You see, God is sovereign yes. He can do anything! Or, He could have put someone in my path to warn me and encourage me not to go. But ultimately, it is my choice. If He burned the bar down…I could have chosen to get drunk at another one.
Or, He could have warned me through that person to not go…but I could have brushed them off and went anyway. Before I got saved I used to get drunk all the time! And drive drunk! But that was a risk I was taking. Another example is having sex before marriage. Now I can make the choice to do this…but there will be a consequence as an effect.
I can get pregnant, get AIDS or another STD, end up giving my whole heart and life to the wrong person, get hurt emotionally or psychologically, etc. Because when I sow to the flesh…I will reap destruction. But when I sow to the Spirit obedience and that which is pleasing to God …I will reap eternal life…and blessings for my obedience. Now God is God…. He can show mercy to whoever He wants and not show mercy to whoever He wants. Read Romans 9 it really breaks this concept down. So be encouraged Jared. Nothing can separate you from His love…nothing!
Because His love is not based on your choices….
