Is He Pleased with Us?

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mark 1:9-11 King James Version

When God looks in our hearts, is He pleased with what He sees? If He sees us going to places that we should not go to or if He hears us saying things that we should not say, He is not going to be pleased with us. If He sees us abusing our spouses, our children, our parents or anyone else, He definitely will not be pleased with us.

I don’t know about you but when God looks in my heart, I want Him to see things that please Him. I want Him to hear me telling others that Jesus loves them. Don’t ever put your eyes on me because I am not perfect. I fail Him every day. Keep your eyes on Jesus and on Him alone. Don’t put your eyes on your pastor or your Sunday school teacher or anyone else. Keep looking to Jesus!

There is always another email that I could have sent, another telephone call I could have made or another letter I could have sent by regular mail. When it finally sinks into the depths of our hearts the urgency of spending our time telling the good news of a risen Saviour and His unconditional love, then and only then will God be pleased with us. Is He pleased with you and your service to Jesus?
