Seeking the purpose of God 3

God’s idea of living life is to make a conscious and deliberate effort to live godly and exhibit good, moral character.

‭‭Philippians 2:12 NLT‬‬
[12] Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.

It is also God’s purpose for us to choose to do good.

‭‭Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NLT‬‬

[19] “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! [20] You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Making the right choice is God’s ultimate will in every situation.

Even our Lord Jesus recognized this when He struggled at His lowest moment. 

‭‭Matthew 26:39 NLT‬‬

[39] He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
