Eph. 5:10-11 Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, rebuke and expose them.

How hard are you trying to find out what is pleasing to the Lord? How much thought do you give to your living as a child of God? If you are trying to please Him, where are you looking for answers? Are you waiting on the Lord for your answers or are you listening to other voices?

God makes it very clear in His Word what pleases Him. He does not lead us into confusion. We are to live holy lives before Him. We are to let Him expose our sinful thoughts and actions and do away with them. We are to direct our attention to Him. Jesus is to be the focus of our thoughts and living. We are to have no part in the worthless deeds of the flesh; they are sinful in origin and an abomination to God. When we encounter sin, we are to rebuke and expose it, not cuddle up to it.

It is a very difficult battle to fight. No matter how strong we become in faith, we will never outgrow our need to stay focused on Christ. Satan knows our weaknesses and he will expose and exploit them until we die. Don't slack off. Always try to find out what pleases the Lord and then do it. Shun evil. No matter how much pressure you may feel, don't take part in that which is sinful. You know what is sinful and what isn't. God doesn't leave you in the dark. Develop a desire to always please the Lord and you will never be in doubt. Let the Spirit expose and rebuke sin wherever He finds it so you won't fall into its snare.
