Pleasing God or Pleasing Self Part 4

Yesterday we talking about putting out lustful thinking and putting in God's Word. Today we are going to continue with the second part of that subjuct. We are going to talk aboutpursing God.
 2 Corinthian 7:1 says "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God." We pursue after dreams, we pursue after boys but when is the last time we truly tried to pursue after an intimate relationship with God.
Ephesians 5:1-4 "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks."
Do you spend time thinking of God's goodness and greatness? Do you ever open the psalms and simply praise God for who He is? Do you talk to him? Do you embrace His Words to you? Do you spend time trying to make the effort of being what God would want you to be? Do you dress to please him? Do you talk to please Him? This is pursueing God.
I Peter 1:14-16 "As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance :But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."
Ok Ladies, we know how to chase boys, lets instead chase GOD!
