THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD

THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD

Romans 12:2
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

There are three levels to the will of God for your life.

1. THE GOOD WILL OF GOD
It is God’s good will that no-one should perish in sin.
This is level one. You must receive Christ as your saviour from sin – and prove that God’s good will has now become yours. You have now received eternal life through God’s good will toward you.
This is new Christian level.
GOD’S GOOD WILL HAS WIDE BOUNDARIES.

2. THE ACCEPTABLE WILL OF GOD
The acceptable will of God is the revelation of His purpose and calling.
This is found in His written word and gives you boundaries for behaviour.
The Bible is clear – Not everything in life is good for you – nor are some things acceptable to God.
This level of God’s will is your ongoing discipleship growth – as you become more like Jesus.
So many people want God’s good will – but do not want to yield their old behaviour to the demands of God’s acceptable will.
This is discipleship level.
GOD’S ACCEPTABLE WILL HAS NARROW BOUNDARIES

3. THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD
The perfect will of God starts to show in our lives when our love for our saviour transcends our love for this natural world and its pleasures.
We learn to put God first in everything and we choose to show His love to all people.
This is the ultimate level – and can only be achieved by progressing through the other levels.
We have now learnt to walk the centre line of His love.
This is mature Christ-like level.
GODS PERFECT WILL HAS NO BOUNDARIES

BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND –
SO THAT YOU MAY PROVE –
THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD
FOR YOUR LIFE.
