“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #27: Doing the Will of God - The Heart of the Lord.

"For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me." - John 6:38 (NIV) 


This is a good example; one that we need to emulate.

Jesus knew how he was supposed to conduct Himself in life. It was 'not according to His will', but according to the will of the One who sent Him.

It was the will of God, exclusively, that guided Jesus as He walked the earth.

You may devote your life to doing the will of your relatives. You may even obey your relatives more than you obey God, sometimes going against God's will in the process. You may decide to follow your own will, or may follow God's will only in part, or in full. These choices are all available to you.

The problem is not that people do not know the full will of God. Rather, the problem is that some people do not follow even that which they know or believe to be the will of God. Some might even deliberately misrepresent it.

If one can do the will of God that they believe/know, they could be relied upon to act on new knowledge in a similar manner.

Is it God's will? If yes, then strive to do it. If not, then strive not to do it.

Jesus, our Master, came down from heaven not to do His will, but the will of the One who sent Him. Glory to God for this role model!
