We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING. Today’s topic? GOD’S WILL.
Jesus made it clear that we should always seek God’s will — not ours. Sadly, I need a reminder of that simple fact approximately every .03 seconds.
Pray through the following words straight from the mouth of Jesus with all your heart and mind:
Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother. (Matthew 12:50)
This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-10)
Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not will, but yours be done. (Luke 22:42)
I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me: that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up on the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. (John 6:38-40)
