2 Corinthians 5:9.  So then whether we are alive or away, we make it our ambition to please him. 

Oftentimes we co fuse ourselves on our purpose for living.  We make up a variety of reasons we think our purpose in this life is, sometimes multiple purposes.  We confuse our purpose along with our identity and our belonging.  Our purpose and our ambition should be one and the same.  We are here by God’s own choosing therefore our purpose is to please God.  We please God through praise, thanksgiving, worship and obedience which are only possible for us through the power of His Holy Spirit.  God is Spirit and we must worship Him in Spirit.  Giving “lip service” does not work.  Our question is do we want to be pleasing to God or are we more concerned about be pleasing to ourselves or another person?  Who will you be pleasing to this day?
