Currently, my church is working our way through the book of Ephesians. This series has come after a long discussion about discerning God’s will in our lives, and how to apply it. Before this study, and others like it, my thoughts about God’s will were very limited. Odd sounding, I know.
Before I thought God’s will was something hyper-specific and if we made one wrong decision we were doomed. Thankfully, God is far more merciful and beautiful.
Scripture, naturally, says it best, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which He lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ.” (Ephesians 1: 7-9 ESV).
Discovering God’s will for our lives, my pastor observed, is as straightforward as the Nike slogan: Just Do It.
Seriously, stop dancing around in your seats, worrying if God’s will for the day is that you wear the blue sweater or the red. “Hold fast to what is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21 ESV). Just Do It, Christian! Please, pray for me in this capacity, as I pray for you.
