Redirecting The Need To Please

Pastor Victor’s new sermon series will focus on several benedictions in the bible, and today’s installment takes its text from a very familiar and beloved verse, Psalm 19:14. The verse is essentially a humble prayer of dedication, and very fitting for the occasion. We are celebrating the commencement and accomplishments of our 2020 graduates.

Most assuredly the graduates recognize that the Lord has been with them as they progressed through school or matriculated at their chosen university, and He will continue to be their rock and keep on guiding them to choose what is right as they start life’s next exciting chapter.

In return, of utmost importance is pleasing God every step of the way. God is pleased when we seek an intimate relationship with Him. When we get to know God better, He gets to know us even better. In this busy world of ours, we must always carve out quality time with the Lord. For without Him, we would have nothing let alone experience the marvelous things He has in store.

We also please Him when the meditations of our hearts are acceptable in His sight. Our heart is the source of the words we speak. Are our words beautiful and emanate from an inner purity? Are our words edifying and full of grace? Do our words please God? Especially at commencement as graduates ponder and plan their future, others may also join in by praying the graceful, blessed prayer of benediction, rededicating themselves to the Lord. For He is sovereign, and He is our strength.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my Redeemer. Amen.
