I am to walk so as to please God Much of the time there seems to be an element in me that wants to see if what I am doing is pleasing in the eyes of man I find that what pleases God does not please man even myself The flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh So I must strive to work to please God The pleasing of man is not my eternal reward To walk so to please God is what I will have as a eternal reward in Heaven Every work will be brought into judgment

This verse shows that no matter what we do in any area of life we should do so whole-heartedly to God. We must make sure that we give God our very best. He deserves nothing less.

As christians all our actions and thoughts should be directed towards God

People with no Christ in their hearts tend to do things for their own honor and glory. But we Christians(saved by the precious Blood of Christ) should be vessels unto honor, which is to honor God in everything we do. There's no greater things to compare than doing it for God's glory. Let's just ask God for guidance that all that we are doing are only for God's honor and glory.

I think the word is telling Us to do the works through JESUS CHRIST with good heart if they must be pleasing to GOD.

So many people in this world, didn't see how God is good, He prepared everything, just to seek and to save to those who not seen the light of the word of our savior, who died on the cross for our sins.
Believed, trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey......

2Timothy2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Whatever you want to do it with Gods mind. Do not do eye service.
