1 Thessalonians 4:1-2 NIV
“As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.”
As believers in Jesus Christ, we are to live our lives to please God. No, God is not pleased with us no matter what we do, as many are espousing. He isn’t pleased with us just on the basis of a profession of faith in him. He wants us to live our lives (in conduct, in action) to please him.
