Often we hear people saying, if it is the will of God, then I would do this or that. We pray for God’s will to be done in and through our life, seldom pausing to find out what that will of God is. Romans 12:2 commands us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, so that we may prove the perfect will of God. So what is this perfect will of God?
Jesus said, that he came to do the will of God (Hebrews 10:9). Paul, in his letter to Timothy writes that Jesus came to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). So by using these two texts, we can extrapolate, that God’s perfect will is to save sinners through Jesus Christ.
Points to ponder:
Are you/I doing the perfect will of God? Proverbs 11:30 affirms that a soul winner is wise. So those who do the will of God, by presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to those who are unsaved, for the salvation of their souls, are wise. In other words, to do the perfect will of God, by pointing the sinner to the Savior Jesus Christ, who came to save, is to be wise. Are you/I doing the perfect will of God? Are you/I wise?
Hebrews 10:9 (KJV)
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
1 Timothy 1:15 (KJV)
15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Proverbs 11:30 (KJV)
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
