In my opinion, probably 80%. My action is probably a little better than that. My problem has always been fussing with Him. Which has gotten me in so much trouble. The good news is, I am learning not to get upset with Him Because, I cannot stay angry with Him. You simply cannot stay angry at a person that you love, so why put myself through all of that? You might say, God has worn me down. [Won me over]

I don't think the question addresses something that can be quantified.

Hi j-nonymous :) Beautifully, beautifully stated. :) Amen.

God looks upon the heart, not the outward actions. If you are a Christian living like the devil, then your actions mean nothing to God. If you are a Christian and are loving your enemies, turning the other cheek, forgiving one another, not judging others, especially other Christians, tithing, speaking the word, praying at all times in the Spirit, then let God think and measure how He wants to, amen?

Only because of the sacrifice of His Son are we pleasing to Him. I exchanged my sin for His righteousness. The rest of life I try to spend thanking Him by being obedient to His will in word and deed. When I sin, I repent and ask forgiveness of my sin. Without Jesus, all these efforts would be in vain.

Knowledge without relationship produces works.

Scripture memorization, even comparative religion memorization, memory skills, learning techniques - without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ produces works and a works driven interpretation of the Gospel.

That's an awful good question, one we should ponder often.

How much of my time am I pleasing to You because I am doing things in "the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in" Your sight (see 1 Peter 3:4)??? Well, You are the One who knows if I ever am truly in Your Holy Spirit's "gentle and quiet spirit" of Your own love...or if I'm merely making my own self seem to be. So, please do what only You can do in us, so we are really pleasing to You while sweetly sensitive and submissive to You.

God isn't just displeased when we do something wrong, he is just as displeased when we fail to do something good. The Good Samaritan story is a good example. The two guys that passed by didn't do anything wrong but they failed to do what God expected of them and thus were in sin and displeased God. I think in my case I may not do many bad things but my bigger problem is that I don't do what I'm supposed to do all the time.

It is not for me to say, but God.
But if you insist, my guess would be 0%
