“Is there a better way to walk in the will of God?” DeYoung tells us there is, its called ‘The Jesus way.”
‘Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is it’s own trouble.’ Matthhew 6
This opening section of the chapter helped to center my thoughts on the book so far and on some of the discussions i have had with others (offline) about the topic of God’s will. The truth is we could argue, discuss and disagree about how God speaks and what he speaks to us about all day long but where is the verse quoted above in our thoughts? All the things we get anxious about are important in our minds, to each of us, given all of our different circumstances but, are we seeking first the Kingdom of God?
The Chapter ends with a point that does not need any explanation. ‘Be Holy like Jesus, by the power of the spirit, for the glory of God.’
I guess that final point is why i have kept this post brief. The command to seek first the Kingdom so often gets lost behind debates about the hows and whys so i’ll leave it there for now………
