How Do I Please God?
A lot of people believe in a God who lets good people go to heaven when they die. So, they try to do enough good that they are able to earn their way into heaven. The sad thing is, they are missing the point. But, there is good news.
Because of the wrong things that you do, you can't EARN your way into heaven. The way to get there is by asking Jesus to come into your heart and take control of your life. Once you do this, you will be forgiven for every wrong thing that you have ever done or ever will do, you will be given the Holy Spirit to live inside of you and guide you, and you will know for sure that you are going to heaven.
You see, when Jesus died 2,000 years ago, he died to take the punishment for the things that you, and every other person, have done wrong. Then, he rose from the dead and went to heaven to prepare a place for everyone who believes in him and asks him to come into their life. That's why you can know for sure that you are going to heaven.
Here's the bottom line: Your Heavenly Father loves you very much. After all, He created you. So, naturally, He wants you to love Him, too. Jesus said to love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. He also said to love others just as much as you love yourself. In other words, once you let Jesus Christ take control of your life, if you treat others right and do good things for them, you will please God.
