'PLEASE HIM'

"And He that sent Me is with Me, the Father has not left Me alone for I do always those things that please Him" - John 8:29
.
If pleasing God hasn't become a priority in your life, God cannot make you His priority. One of the important ways of pleasing God is to do His will and to finish His work (John 4:34). 
.
Is doing God's will a meat to you?
.
There are numerous areas of doing God's will but whichever means, it must come from the heart (Eph. 6:6). God doesn't accept anything a man does that doesn't come from his heart. The will of God Jesus was doing was making Himself and the Father known to the Samaritan woman (John 4).
.
To do God's will is to abstain from fornication (1 Thess. 4:3) whether that which is outwardly (1 Cor. 6:16) or inwardly done (Matt. 5:29).
.
Next is to give thanks in everything in life (1 Thess. 5:18). Rather than complain, worry or murmur; give thanks to God in everything.
.
To please God, He expects you to do well to everyone even to those who act wickedly to you. This is why you're expected to pay good with evil (Rom. 12:21) and pray for those who despitefully used you (Matt. 5:44-48).
.
All these areas of doing God's will are just one part. There are more to be discovered when you study His word.
.
Do you know God's desire/wish for your life? Study His word. Are you doing His will? Ask for grace to be determined and consistent. Jesus' meat was to do the will of the Father. What is your own meat?
.
The meat you should strive for is that which endures to everlasting life. Let your life (word, deed, relationship etc) please God and not bring shame or dishonor to Him.
