Pleasing God.

In John 8:29, Jesus said, that the one who sent Him did not leave Him alone.  For Jesus did what was pleasing to the Father.  This should be the motto for our lives.  We should try to do everything the Father wants us to do.  One time a man asked me what was the will of God for the Christian?  I knew it was a test question but I gave the best answer I could.  I said, "To be like Jesus."  He said, "Yes."  The old hymn puts it beautifully, "To be like Jesus, all I asked is to be like Him, through life’s journey from earth to glory, all I asked is to be like Him."  Jesus was never alone according to this verse because He was doing the will of the Father.  Now in Matt 28:20, Jesus said, "He would never leave or forsake us."  When we are doing the will of God the Lord will be with us.  Every thought, word, deed and attitude He will be behind.  Every step of our walk with Him He will be with us.  It is so comforting to know that we are walking with the God of the universe.  He is keeping a close watch on us.  He know what we will face before we face it and He has ordered our steps even before we take one step.  If we trust God all things will work out.  This does not mean that all things are good but all things will work out for good.  So today be like Jesus and do the will of the Father.  You will not be alone and you will have divine help.
