THE WILL OF GOD

We must proclaim the Living God. He is the God who will judge the world in righteousness, holding each one accountable for the deeds he has done in the flesh (2 Cor. 5:10). The judgement on the last day will be based on if we did the will of God through Jesus Christ. God's will is that the Gospel be preached to all creation and that men repent and be baptized for remission of sins. God is involved in all of these things. Providentially working to open doors that the Gospel have access to more people. God is working in and through His children to accomplish His will, show His glory, and convict the world of sin. God is the living God whose will must be done. As you pray, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven", remember what Paul said, "It is God who is at work in you to will and to work His good pleasure" (Phil 2:13). To know that God is at work in us, showing us His kindness (Rom. 2:4) and saving us by His power (Col. 2:12) and giving us His Holy Spirit to dwell in us is awe inspiring. We know it's true by faith.

With that said, we must do our part. "Not everyone that says 'Lord, Lord' will enter the kingdom of heaven. But he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven will enter" (Mt 7:21ff). We by faith, knowing we live under the rule of the Almighty, Powerful God, must do His will. His will is that you pray to Him. Did you pray to Him today? He will not make you do it. He will work through your prayer and accomplish His will. But you must pray. Did you confess Christ this week? He will not make you confess Christ. But if you confess Christ, God will work His works through that preaching to rescue souls unto Him. By faith let us do the will of God. Let's be actively serving Him and others. We must proclaim the works of God and then watch what God accomplishes in your life.
