Your Faith Journey

Worship God – The apostle Paul encouraged Christians in Thessalonica to “live in a way that pleases God” (1 Thessalonians 4:1 NLT). To live a life that pleases God, we have to know Him, study His will revealed in the Bible, and invite the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts, attitudes, words, and actions to live in a way that glorifies God instead of simply satisfying our own wants and desires.

Are you living a life that pleases God? If not, what needs to change?

In his letter to believers in Rome, the apostle Paul wrote, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NLT).

Begin the transformation process to live according to God’s will by following Jesus mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. As you change your thoughts and attitude, the Holy Spirit will guide you to live in a way that pleases the Lord through new behaviors.

For further study, you’re encouraged to read all of Romans 12 and 1 Thessalonians 4. As you read scripture, humbly ask God to reveal a word, phrase, or verse for you for each day.
