Without Faith Hebrews 11:6 .....And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Notice .... It says without" Faith " you cannot please God . So it did not say with " good works" you offer Him because we cannot earn His favour. I am thinking of people in the church who are into many ministries and think they are pleasing God because they think they are serving Him . But beware, cause God looks at the heart and the motive and are they doing it for God or themselves.? We should be doing it because we love God , not because we are trying to get something from Him. I think this verse is a reminder that God rewards those who diligently seek Him . He rewards those who do works out of the abundance of their heart. We will not receive blessing from God if we think we are doing these things for man and desire "a well done ' from people or the Pastor. For like Jesus says these people will get their reward here but not in heaven .
