What can we do to please God?
But do you think that God can be amazed by that? He is in heaven and we on the earth. He is the creator of the entire universe and our planet and us included. Can He be amazed or pleased by a nice built temple for example? Yes, we are amazed by that many times and if we say that He is so great, we can conclude that He deserves our best. But the truth is that He doesn’t need it and He is not and He can’t be pleased even by our very best. It is not only that He doesn’t want it, but He also can not.
If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, Or drink the blood of goats?”
He says to God: “For all things come from You and of Your own we have given You.” He doesn’t state that he just doesn’t have anything now and that’s why he offers to God what comes from Him, but he rather states that we don’t and we can’t offer to God anything except what we have received from Him. Because this is the only thing that can please Him. David says: “For all things come from you…” He also starts this statement with giving thanks and praising Him, exactly because of His precious gifts to them.
Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof. Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
That’s why even if today we see and marvel to temples and churches made and crafted by the most skillful artist of the world and we remain without breath looking at them sometimes, we have to know that God doesn’t actually marvel at that and what He makes and comes from Him is much more beautiful and mightier than that and can not even compare with anything else on the world. Just imagine the details and the beauty with witch the creation is made. Just look at a flower for example and see how perfect it is. Which sculpture or image made by man can be compared to His creation? To this we can add the mightier of our works and deeds. Which one can be compared to His work of redemption offered to mankind. It can’t be even mentioned any comparison we can make with it.
