1 Peter 4:1-2 say “Since Christ therefore has suffered in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same mind (because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin), no longer to live the rest of the time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but in the will of God.

1 Peter (Program #18) -Christian Life and Its Sufferings (6)

The apostle Peter encourages his fellow believers in Christ to suffer for righteousness by the will of God as Christ did.

We have some wonderful pictures of how we can sanctify Christ in our heart through suffering and also what happened when Christ’s Spirit was made alive in His death.

Ephesians (Program #14) – A Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation and the Eyes of Our Heart

Ephesians is a book filled with marvelous spiritual facts, it reveals the mystery of the will of God. Yet to many people even Christians, Ephesians is a closed book; though they read it and understand the words, they do not gain the vision that is conveyed in this book. That’s because to see spiritual truth in reality is different from mere mental comprehension. That’s why the apostle prayed so earnestly in the first chapter that the readers would have all the necessary tools to see and enter into the vision that he is presenting in his letter. Listen as he prays in verse 17 & 18, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him. The eyes of your heart having been enlightened that you may know what is the hope of His calling and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”

We need to see what God’s will is.  When we talk about God’s will we shouldn’t have the thought of “what can God do for me?”  What we need to see is that God has a heart’s desire.  He has a great will in this universe and we want to be one with Him to carry out His will.  Hebrews 10:5-10, specifically verse 7 where the Lord says “I have come to do Your will, O God”.  What this means is that God’s great will in the universe.  If you look at the context of this verse is to have Christ as the replacement of all the sacrifices and offerings in the Old Testament that He would come and become the reality of all the sacrifices and offerings so that we might enjoy Him as our all in all.   So what is God’s will?  more…
