In this year of “Under Construction” we are using our preaching time each Sunday to explore themes that help us build a deeper faith. If we allow Him, God is constantly constructing us into the people that He wants us to be. When a house is built, the builder takes special care to make sure that the end product is one that pleases the owner. Our lives are no different. We want our lives to please the Owner – our very Creator.
In Galatians 1, Paul writes his friends and reminds them that they are not to worry about pleasing people, but rather they should live to please God. He writes of himself, “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.” We need to be God pleasers, not people pleasers.
Starting on Sunday, May 15th, we are going to take a journey together through the Book of Galatians. Along the way we will be reminded how to let God build us into people who are pleasing to Him. This topic is important for believers as we want everything in our lives to please God. This topic is critical for non-believers as well. Invite an unbelieving or unchurched friend to worship with you. Perhaps they will discover that a life pleasing to God is the best life of all.
