God’s perfect will


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)
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.

  1. Thank you Brother, for reminding us about God’s perfect will. One has to experience in order to know his perfect will. God’s perfect will is also reminded in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will in Christ Jesus”. Now how can one be joyful always or pray continually or give thanks in all circumstances especially when one is stuck with dreadful cancer disease or on losing a job or a loved one? The verse reminds us at the end “In Christ Jesus”. Only in him and through him can you do all of the above. So the only way you can experience the above is through Jesus Christ. So come to him and you will never regret. Thanks again for the reminder.
    Keep up the good work.
    John.

    • Thank you brother John for your encouraging words and the reminder of God’s will from the letter of God to the church in Thessalonica. The King James Version of the Bible renders 1 Thessalonians 5:18 as “…this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” and what caught my attention is the will of God “IN CHRIST JESUS” is CONCERNING US. God is concerned about us regarding his will. The question that remains which demands an answer is whether we are concerned about God regarding his will? God bless you and your family richly.
