The Lie That We Must Choose Between Pleasing God And Pleasing Ourselves

Selected highlights from this sermon.

We don’t have to make a choice between pleasing God or pleasing ourselves. If we’re diligently and honestly seeking God, we’ll find that His pleasures and our pleasures converge—they become one and the same.

The truth is that we seek temporal pleasures. We want to do our own thing. And when we do that, we’ve created idols in our hearts. Our pleasures become our gods.

But as we mature in our spiritual life, we’ll see that those fleeting pleasures bring misery and sorrow; and that eternal joys and pleasures are found only in God.
