Can We Please God?



The Bible teaches that since the original sin of Adam, all humans are spiritually dead and morally incapable of submitting to God in faith and obedience.  By nature we have a mindset that cannot submit to God.  "The mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed it cannon.  Those who are in the flesh cannot please God" (Rom. 8:7-8).  The reason for this moral inability is given in Ephesians 2:1-"You were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked."  And therefore, we are "sons of disobedience" and "children of wrath"...

  1. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ, by grace you have been saved. — Ephesians 2:4-5 Praise God!
