“Pleasing God” explores a seldom considered topic vital to Christian health and maturity.
FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Dallas, Texas, June 6, 2021 — “Pleasing God: Discovering the Blessing of God’s Favor” from author and Bible teacher Perry Brown (ThM Dallas Seminary) asserts that we can both know we are pleasing to God and that we are truly created for His pleasure!
Christians spend a lot of time believing God and trusting God and obeying God; fearing Him and looking for Him and living for Him; understanding Him and studying Him and teaching about Him; following Him and learning from Him. But rarely do they consider what pleases Him – and if they are pleasing to Him.
Perry understands that each of us has invested significant emotional energy trying to please others. And if we fail, those failures may unavoidably color our relationship with God, cloud our understanding of Him, confuse our fellowship with Him, and curtail our joy in Him. But it need not be so.
The Bible has much to say about exactly what does please God. Faith. Obedience. Love. Humility. Compassion. Fear of the Lord. Self-control. Knowledge. Justice. Each chapter in “Pleasing God” explores one of these topics and reveals why that virtue pleases the Lord and how we please Him when we practice it.
Perry concludes, “The Christian life is much more enjoyable when we are daily motivated by the knowledge of God’s pleasure toward us. That assurance is like a good meal that fills us in the moment and fuels us for the work-to-come that He has prepared for us from eternity.”
