God’s Will For His Children

I Timothy 2:4

“Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

I Peter 2:2

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:”

II Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

Today, we are looking at God’s will for His children in His churches. God’s Word is very clear about His desire for lost people to be saved. This is why He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins. This is why He has extended His grace to us so that we can benefit from it. For lost people to be saved, they must come to the knowledge of the truth of God’s Word, which is why believers need to share the message of the Gospel with them. This is the will of God as stated in His Word. God wants saved people to tell lost people about being saved, so that they may be able to be saved as well if they receive the truth of the Gospel for their own forgiveness of their sins. Once a person is saved, God’s will for their life is to grow in their relationship with the Lord. We grow through the truth of God’s Word just like a person gets saved. We grow in our relationship with the Lord by getting to know Him, and we get to know Him by the revelation of Himself to us in His Word. As we grow in the Lord and grow in knowing Him through His Word, then it enables us to bring Him more glory in our lives. God’s Word clearly states what His will is for each of us; the question is who of us will follow His will for our lives.
