Faith Pleases God
Hebrews 11:6 (KJB) 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.
Faith is perpetual spiritual fuel. It allows a repentant man to be eternally pleasing and spiritually attractive to God. It is a spiritual propellant driving a man to his knees and unto a personal relationship with God.
Faith is placing confidence in the supernatural power and presence of God, rather than having hope in oneself or in things of this world. Without placing hope in God, a man cannot ever be pleasing to God. When a man cannot please God, he has no hope for the eternal state of his future. In fact, there is no possible way a man can align himself with God if he does not share in God’s opinion about sin and death for God cannot associate His purity with the blemish of sin.
When a man chooses to agree with God he is aligned spiritually with God in his heart and mind. His eternal heart condition pleases God and relies solely upon confidence in Him for his future rather than relying upon his self or work of others.
