What does God want?

Psalms 4:2-5
2. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3. But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

This reminds me of Curt’s sermon yesterday. Among other things, he said today’s concept of God is that God wants all his people to flourish and above all to be happy, and that He will satisfy their every desire. And while that is not entirely untrue, the thing that God wants is for us to be HOLY. He wants us to live sanctified lives. He wants us to want to serve Him.

It is not about what we want. It is about what God wants. And He wants Holiness!
