Simply believing in God is not enough to please him. After all,the bible says that even the demons believe that God exists. (James 2:9) obvisously, though, they do not do God's will and do not have his approval.
To be approved by God , not only must we believe in his existence but we must also do his will we must also break free from false religion and embrace true worship focusing on outward appearances can be a pleasing way to decorate a house, but it is a dangerous way to live. Jesus reprimanded many religious leaders of his day because they did not practice what they preached.
They were addicted to receiving praise and feelings self-important. Instead of opening the kingdom of heaven to people, they shut the door in their faces.
Jesus said of them, "All their works they do to be seen by men" (Matthew 23:5).
The lord calls us to be people of inner substance,not just outward appearance. We are to demonstrate the reality of his presence in us by attitude of humility. "he who is greater among you shall be your servant" (v.11).In living for Jesus, our content is far more important than our cover. We are here for more than show.
Let my will be lost in God's will, ask no questions; seek no place, render humbliest duties gladly. Showing forth his truth and grace.
If God controls you on the inside, you will be genuine on the outside.
