God's Will for Our Lives, is the Salvation of Souls!
Bible Verse Galatians 5:24-26
And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
Christ Jesus our Lord, has given each of us a unique blending of spiritual gifts, for the service He has called us to do. This is different for each believer, therefore, we cannot look at each other as the world does. Our work within the "body of Christ" is not a competition, there is no corporate ladder to climb with God. The best theologian, and the lowliest of saints are equal in the eyes of God. What matters is what has God called you to do! This means we are not at odds with one another, rather we are unique parts of a cohesive whole. God looks at the motives and intents of our hearts. This means when we think as the world thinks and we look at each with conceit, envy and in a spirit of jealousy, we not only hurt ourselves, but we also hurt the body of Christ. This is why we must remember, when Jesus looks at us He does so with eternity in mind. God looks at everyone with eternity in mind! Moreover, as it relates to our rewards in Heaven, Jesus not only looks at what we do, but the motives, the desires and most importantly the heart attitude behind the actions we carry out.
In other words, God is not interested in our deeds, but in our hearts. He is interested in our hearts toward Him, toward fellow believers, toward those in need and to those who are lost and in rebellion against God. This means that "good works" as God see's them only consist of those things we do out of our love for Jesus, our love for others, our heart for those who are in need and for those who do not know Jesus. Those who are lost in a dark and dying world. Dear child of God, it's vitally important we understand that the calling of God for each and every follower of Christ, first and foremost, is to seek those who are lost and share the Good News of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone! Everything else is secondary to that calling. If we want to know the will of God, we must understand that His first priority is all those who will, should come to faith in Christ Jesus our Lord!
