Many days, I am just following my own whims. Whatever feels good to do right then is fine. No plan. No purpose. Just what I want to do. That is it, plain and simple.

Jesus challenges us to do what God wants us to do. That is all that matters. God has a goal for us. God has given us the power, through the Holy Spirit, to be obedient. It is all about God and what he wants. Period. End of story.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me.  [1]

John 6:35-38

Jesus is all about fulfilling the will of God. Jesus is focused on that exclusively. Jesus shows us the way.

  • Galatians 1:3–4 (CSB) — 3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.
  • Isaiah 53:10 (CSB) — 10 Yet the Lord was pleased to crush him severely. When you make him a guilt offering, he will see his seed, he will prolong his days, and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.
  • Acts 2:23 (CSB) — 23 Though he was delivered up according to God’s determined plan and foreknowledge, you used lawless people to nail him to a cross and kill him.
