My Pastor presented this to us in his message in January. I have been looking for it and found it today in my sermon notes.
God’s will for your life is not
4. Revealed to others
5. Based on circumstances
6. Contrary to God’s word
God’s will for your life is
1. To be saved 2 peter 3:9
2. To be sanctified 1 Thess 4:3
3. To be spirit filled Eph 5:17-18
4. To be submissive 1 Peter 2:13-15
5. To endure suffering 1 Peter 4:19
6. To serve Romans 12:1-3
7. To give you what you desire Ps 37:4
God has many provisions in His will in our failures. Knowing His will for our life is by His word.
I am stressing the importance of total committed faith in the Lord. I attend a small church. We need more involvement from our members. When Christ is your Savior it is very important to be a light that shows others; I am not just attending church on Sunday only. Most of us have a prayer night or bible study night to attend. Sad to say mostly the same members are involved in Awana, youth group and prayer group. Don’t get me wrong this is not the case with all our Christian churches.
Some older people would like to come but, we should offer if possible to bring them. Maybe they cannot come, if they are ill or shut ins. Maybe they are parents working late or they just need to realize how important this is for their children. We can make many excuses. Every week buses go and pick up youth and children who can meet at a central location.
This is not about you only.This about our children’s generation. Who is going to help them to know the Lord as their Savior? What will they pass on to the next generation and so on? It’s a parent that is faithful to the Lord’s plan that will influence them. If we don’t tell them will they every know about anything but, this fallen world. There is a heaven and a hell. You are their example. We will all stand accountable on that day of judgement, every one of us… Make a difference get involved in your church. Remember that is how the truth that Christ is the only way to heaven gets passed down from generation to generation. Be committed to Christ’s our Lord’s plan today.
