October 23 I Thessalonians 4 Live a life pleasing to God

Just how does one do that? Again we have an area where someone could very easily fall back into legalism. In order to please God I have to do certain things and not do other things. When one develops this attitude the focus goes away from living to worrying about how. If the gospel is true, and I believe that it is. Then the Holy Spirit is in us to give directions. Don't worry so much about the whats, just live life looking not for glory but for joy. And if something isn't quite right trust that God will let you know. If the only way to please my father is by doing stuff then the relationship is not based on love. God loves me, I do not need to perform to please Him. All I need to to is want to please Him, He can fix the rest.
