Text: Hebrews 11: 6: 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.
Would you love to please the Lord?
What is the first step to please God? Do you think it is to stop sinning? Or maybe do something very good? Or follow all the rules to the letter? No! The first thing is to believe . Without faith none of those things pleases God.

The truth is that by your own strength you will not be able to do anything to please God or to deserve His favor. Only faith in Jesus saves. You need to believe that Jesus will make the transformation within you. God only wants you to believe that He exists and that He has power to save you and to transform your life. When you believe that, God guides your life so that you live in the way that pleases him.
