Number One Purpose

No matter what else you do or how well you do it, if you do not believe God, you will never please God. Life's number one purpose is to please God, because nothing else matters in life if you don't please God. If you please God, it doesn't matter who you displease. If you do displease God, it doesn't matter who you please.

[Dr. Merritt]

Hebrews 11:16 ... But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 13:16 ... But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

1 Thessalonians 4:1 ... Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
