《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Heb 11:6)
Meditation one: What is the essential prerequisite for people to please God? One must believe in God! If there is no faith, no matter how many good deeds, no one can please God. People have no faith in God is equivalent to they do not treat God as God. It is just similar to an insult that a son denies his father, which certainly is not possible to please God.
Meditation two: To believe God’s existence will be enough for me? It is not enough! Even the devil believes the existence of God (Jas 2:19). We must believe in the Lord Jesus who was sent by God and establish a personal, energetic, relationship in life with Him. We must believe in the God who is kind, loving, and full of grace. He richly blesses all who call on Him (Rom 10:12).
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for the faith that You have built in me. Please open my spiritual eyes. I like to spend time to be with You. By the light of Your words, I can know You more, love You more, and become more like you. Please increase my faith and I am willing to live out the faith through deeds to please You in everything. I pray in the precious name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
