8 So then [de] they that are [on] in [en] the flesh [sarx] cannot [ou][dunamai] please [aresko] God [theos]. KJV-Interlinear
8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. ESV
As we stated a couple of studies ago, there are only two environments in which you can live your life, the first is the carnal environment, which is also referred to as the flesh, and the second is the spiritual environment.
You can only know the difference between the two, by learning Bible doctrine.
The carnal state is the out of fellowship state.
The spiritual state is the in-fellowship state.
Life in the spiritual life in a relationship with God is functional only when a person is in fellowship.
The fellowship state is only available to believers in Christ, and is not available to unbelievers.
God is pleased only when you live your life in fellowship, because that is where your spiritual life functions, and where your relationship with God likewise is functional.
Living out of fellowship, or in the carnal state, you are living outside of Gods will, and in a state where your spiritual life and your relationship with God does not function.
And needless to say, God is not pleased when your spiritual life is dead in the water so to speak.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
If you can dream and not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,
If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,
If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,
Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.
These studies, are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, that is easily accessible, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
