God’s Will

Sadly , we get to thinking that God’s Will is the big things.   Our calling, or a ministry.   Of course, that is God’s Will.     But God’s Will is that we should be sanctified,  or set aside to Him, each day.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 -24 “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly;  and I pray God your whole spirit, and soul, and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

                                             Faithful is He who calleth you,  Who also will do it.”

We should wake with Him.   (And prayers for the day are very helpful.   It brings you before the throne of grace,  and gets you in a good frame of mind right away. Hebrews 4:16)

We should go out with God.  (He has plainly told us that He will never leave us, nor forsake us.   Hebrews 13:5)

We should witness of what Christ has done for us.

1 Peter 2:9 “ ……that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of the darkness into His marvelous light:”

1 Peter 3:15 “But sanctify the Lord God in our hearts:  and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you,…”

We should seek to be kind to all we can, and do good.

1 Peter 3:8-10 “Finally,  be all of one mind,  having compassion one of another;  love as brethren,  be pitiful,  be courageous:

                           Not rendering evil for evil,  or railing for railing:  but contrarywise  blessing;  knowing that you are there unto called,  that ye should inherit a blessing.

                            For he that will love life,  and see good days,  let him refrain his tongue from evil,  and his lips that they speak no guile:”

And we should remember we are in a hostile world, that loves not Christ;  but for whom He died.   

Philippians 2:15 “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke,  in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.”

We should look to Him for our peace, joy, and strength to live.

Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God,  which passeth all understanding,  shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

With Him as our King,  on the throne of our lives,  we too may have the blessing of His Will done.  

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” (Matthew. 25:21)
