How To Please God

I have been a Born Again Christian for over forty five years and one of the main questions that I hear is how to please God? The following verse from Hebrews is a good starting point.

note: I will be quoting from The King James (KJV) version and the New Living Translation (NLT)

Hebrews 1:6 

KJV: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

NLT: And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

From my understanding,  we start with accepting the fact that God exists. It starts with the beginning of the bible.

In Genesis1 1:1 we read,

kjv: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. KJV

NLT: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth

You would be wise to read the complete creation story down to and including chapter 2.

You can click on the text hilited in blue to read the scripture verses.

  Genesis 1 

 Genesis 2: 

 Genesis 2:4

KJV: These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.

NLT: This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.

We would not be asking the question, how to please God, if God had not created the heavens and the earth and all things that exists and have existed. We would not exist!

The starting point in pleasing God is to acknowledge God and to believe in God.
