A Life Pleasing to God

1 Samuel 12: 1-25
Dr. Don Wilton

The heart’s desire of every Christian is to live a life pleasing to God. By looking at the lives of people past and present, we can be reap great benefits from the examples they have set. Two present day examples are Ed and Mirth Bolton, parents-in-law of Dr. Wilton, who are celebrating their 90th birthdays. Their lives are living examples of people who were and are willing to be used by God while pointing others to Him.

Consider also Samuel of the Old Testament whose life was marked by several principles of a life pleasing to God. He had words of encouragement and hope for the people of Israel even in the midst of sin. Dr. Wilton shares these principles that marked his life.

We are all leaders in some way. Our leadership roles may differ according to our situation but people are watching our lives. As Christians, we are called to provide the lifeline by sharing the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ through word and deed.

Do others always see your life as pleasing to God? If not, confess to the Lord. Forgiveness is always available.
