Our Value to God

(Kathy Gabler)—Hebrews 11:6 also says that “without faith it is impossible to please God.”  Our stillness may be challenged if we misunderstand that part of the scripture.  We must understand that pleasing our loving Father is different from pleasing others.  Pleasing God is not the same as pleasing the boss or pleasing a task-master or pleasing a judge or pleasing the powers that be in the human realm.  God is not affected by humanness, and He is not so shallow that pleasing Him is about emotions or preferences or moods that humans or Greek gods seem to be fraught with.  Neither is pleasing God a matter of our worth or value to Him as is the case in a master-slave relationship. (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Trust Gives God Access” Vol.22Iss3)
