What Does God Want Me to Do? #2

Friday, March 30, 2012

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13 KJV).

Although not impossible, discerning God’s will for one’s life is oftentimes very difficult. Many times, denominational hierarchies tell you their will for your life, leading you to believe it is “God’s will” for you. Be not fooled, beloved—only Paul can tell us God’s will for us!

Today’s Scripture says God wants to work in us Christians “to will and to do of his good pleasure.” According to Ephesians 1:9,10, “[God] having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him;” Colossians 1:16-20 says “all things” refers to offices of government. Paul explains that God has revealed His will to us: He wants to use us Christians in the ages to come to rule in heaven for His glory!

Before we Christians can attain these heavenly offices (places of leadership), which we will do in eternity (Ephesians 2:6,7), God must educate us now (in this life) to understand His doctrine for this the Dispensation of Grace (Paul’s epistles, Romans through Philemon). These 13 Bible books alone tell us that God is currently forming the Church the Body of Christ, an entity He will use to bring Him glory in heaven. In Paul’s epistles alone, we find our doctrine, duty, walk, and destiny. We study all of the Bible, but the doctrine of Paul’s epistles is God’s Word to and about us (the Body of Christ).

Study Paul’s epistles, and then, by faith, let that doctrine work in you (1 Thessalonians 2:13). Christ Jesus wants to fill your life with His life, to work in and through you so that He can use you to reach this lost, dying world for His glory. Will you, by faith, allow Him to do of His “good pleasure” in and through you?

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
