If we are born again children of God and God is our Father, then we will know the will of our Father for us. We will know what He requires of us, and as obedient children of God we will obey Him, we will do what He requires of us. How can we become children of God? The only way that we can become children of God is that we must obey Jesus Christ.
We must obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, the words that he spoke as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If we obey the words of Jesus then He will reveal Himself to us. If we truly believe in Jesus then we will obey Him and He will reveal Himself to us. Jesus said:”The one who loves Me, is the one who obeys My commands, and Me and My Father will come and dwell with him, and I will reveal Myself to him, I will disclose Myself to him. Jesus also said:”If you love Me, keep my Commandments.” He said:”Why do you call me Lord, Lord and do not what I say? If we do not obey the gospel of Jesus then we do not love Him and He will not reveal Himself to us we will not know Him for real; we will not be born again and we will not be children of God. We will not know the will of God, we will be a fumbling in darkness. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. God gives His Spirit in those who obey Jesus Christ, those who repent of their sin, and of going after their own mind and obey the commands of Jesus Christ. If we do not turn away from following our own mind, listening to other people, how can we trust and follow Jesus? How can we be led by the Holy Spirit?
The words of Jesus his commands are recorded in the Bible, in the scriptures, (the gospels) but we must obey them in order to get to know Jesus. Many believe that they will have salvation by studying the Bible and applying biblical principles, that is not what Jesus said. Jesus said:”Follow Me.” He said:”Obey my words and I will reveal Myself to you.” You will be born again of the Spirit of God and you will hear from God. If we do not hear from God and He is not our Father, or either we are not interested in what He is saying, or we are disobedient children. We cannot be pleasing to God if we do not know and do His will. Jesus explained to us how God wants us to live. That is His commands, His words as recorded in the Gospels, but we can only do the will of God if we hear from Him. He is the Living God and He speaks.
Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice, they listen and they follow Me.” The question is: Do we love Jesus? Do we trust Him? Do we obey His words? Do we live according to His commands? Have we repented of sin and repented of our own ideas our own mind, and are we seeking the mind of Christ? Are we seeking the will of God? Are we seeking to hear from Jesus? Are we seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit or do we follow our own mind? Do we follow after our own desires? Have we designed our own religion? Do we go to the church of our choice and do we just practice religion, or have we become children of God? Do we know our Father? Do we know His voice? Do we do that which is pleasing to Him? If we don’t it is in vain that we call ourselves children of God, because we are in darkness, we don’t know Jesus, we don’t know God. Most believers don’t know God. They just believe what they do not know.
God did not send us a Bible, He sent us the Holy Spirit, His Holy Spirit He gives in those who obey the words of Jesus, who repent and are baptized and who seek to follow Him. Do we know the will of God for our life, his purpose for me or for you? Do we seek His will every day and do we do it, or are we following after our own desires, our own mind, the wisdom of other people? Are we truly seeking the will of our Father and are we doing it. We can only be pleasing to our Heavenly Father to Jesus Christ, if we know His will and do His will. Are we doing that which is pleasing to Him.
May Jesus bless you.
