What God Is Interested In

Hi Everyone,

There is a lot of emphasis today in our culture of doing and having whatever makes you "happy." The problem `is that if we are simply living for the sake of our personal happiness alone, we are always going to be coming up empty and wanting something else eventually.

Some people think that God is like that--I mean they live by this philosophy that God should just do "what makes everyone happy." But the truth is that God doesn't work that way.

God is a lot more interested in matters motives and the true character of our hearts than us being happy. It is about us giving Jesus our trust on a personal basis and accepting His payment on the cross in our place and living accordingly. He is also much more interested in us who have trusted Him being transformed into the image of His Son through the trials, mundane times, and challenges of life.

Someone once said "your character is who you are when no one is watching."

But nothing escapes God's notice-those of us who have trusted Him are called to live lives set apart from the world because we have been sanctified-set apart.
