Well, what am I going to do today? Let's see, ah, what do I feel like doing? Or maybe I should ask what should I be doing? What needs to be done? Why is it a need? Is it what God wants me to do?
Boy, those are a lot of questions with no real answers in sight. Typically what I will to do, goes around and around in my mind. My brain cells wrestle with it. An even better question is, what is God's will for me?
Before answering this question, let's consider how Jesus Christ answered this for himself.
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
The Lord Jesus Christ subsistence was to do the will of the Father.
Now back to the question regarding us: What is the will of God for us?
Our aim in life as sons of God, born again of His spirit, should be doing the will of God from the heart and not just with our mouth.
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
Once we are born again, we start to study the Word of God, which is the will of God. We align our thinking to God's desires which is to have an intimate relationship with us. As we renew our minds to do the Word of God we are doing His will. "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2).
Finally, the one great benefit for doing His will is " And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." I John 2:17.
