Living to please God (in Spirit & by Faith), is so much more beneficial than any temporary pacification of ones flesh! Since our flesh changes constantly, it is never satisfied. Since God never changes, once I get it right with Him, it is always right (regardless of how my flesh changes)!
because the old sinful nature within us is against God. It never did obey God’s laws and it never will. 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their old sinful selves, bent on following their old evil desires, can never please God. Romans 8:7-8 TLB
🔹God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24 KJV
You can never please God without faith, without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely look for him. Heb 11:6 TLB
🔹“For I am the Lord—I do not change. That is why you are not already utterly destroyed, for my mercy endures forever. Malachi 3:6 TLB
