What One Thing That Will Please God?

Is there something we must do to please God- some task or duty?

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe he exists, and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." Hebrews 11:6.

This is the saddest use of the word in all literature. To say it is impossible to please God robs man of all hope of nobility and dreams of salvation; but the implication is that with faith it is indeed possible to please God.

This verse speaks as if coming to The Lord is not a dream but a reality, that there are those who do come to God because they believe he exist and they believe he rewards their searching him out.

Those who come to God here are described as those who earnestly seek him.

The Bible speaks much about faith. It says:
     * Faith comes by hearing and that by the Word of God, (Read the Bible) Romans 10:17.
     * We are saved by faith, (trust God's promise), Ephesians 2:8-9.
     * We can pray to ask Him to help our faith. Mark 9:24.
     * A little faith in a great God works mighty miracles. Luke 17:6

Deeds of service and sacrifice do not by themselves please Our Father in Heaven but they must be expressions of faith. Faith is the key to all things concerning God.

It is not the amount of faith you have but what you have faith in that counts. If our faith is in something weak the results will be weak, but if our faith is in an almighty all-powerful God then the results will be awesome.
