But what is pleasing to God? Is it just becoming saved, or are we given more specific instructions? If the answer were obvious, Paul would not say “try to discern what is pleasing to God.” So we must search to find the answer.
The Bible actually lists a good number of things that God finds pleasing, and this is an extremely worthwhile topic for a careful study by searching “pleasing” in a Bible concordance or, more easily and effectively, by searching “please + God” on the BibleGateway.com site – which covers many translations and allows much more flexible searching. Doing such a study turns up many results, and in a new article "What Pleases God" uploaded today, we look at just some of the more important answers to the question of what is pleasing in God’s sight.
