Can any man please God?

It is absolutely impossible to please God with human efforts. There is no amount of good you can do that God will be pleased with. There is no religion that you practice that can give you approval with God. God’s standard for righteousness is very high that no human can reach the stage of approval with Him.

It was God’s desire after the fall of man in the Garden of Eden to restore man back to Him. But man could not be restored on his own good deed and God have to provide a sacrifice that will take the place of man. Since man could not please God based on his good deeds, God have to look for a perfect man who will die for the entire human race and become the only access to justification with Him. (Romans 5:10)

Jesus Christ, the Son of God being a righteous Man, came according to the will of God to suffer and die for the sin of the whole world. He died and resurrected the third day to become the only access to God by the entire human race.

The death and resurrection of Jesus made it possible for anyone who will receive Him to be justified by God. You can now please God by your faith in the work that Jesus did when He died on the cross.

You who could not attain righteousness by doing good works can now please God by faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus took your place on the cross when He died and when He rose, He gave you the access to God. (Ephesians 2:8)

You can please God, not by what you do, but by whom you believe. Your faith in Jesus is your access into friendship with God. Accept Him today and become a child of God.

If you are ready to please God, pray this prayer now;

Lord Jesus, come into my life; I accept you as my Lord and personal Saviour. I believe you came and died for my sins and rose the third day. Forgive me all of my sins and write my name in the book of life. Give me the grace to follow you till the end of my life. Amen

If you just prayed this prayer, I like you to know you are now a child of God. There is need for you to grow in the knowledge of God. Begin to study and meditate on the word of God and locate a Bible church and start fellow-shipping with children of God.
