When the people asked Jesus what God’s will for them was, He told them, “This is what God wants you to do: Believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29 New Living Translation
Your will, O God, is for us to believe in the One You sent to set us free,
And so my Lord, I choose to receive Jesus Who came to rescue me.
I’ll trust and listen and obey and follow Him in the homeward way.
So let Your Spirit work, I pray, to conform me to Your will today.
He worked it in—I work it out.
Philippians 2:12-13 “So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. (New American Standard)
God has worked His salvation in me. He’s given me a heart of flesh instead of dead stone. He’s working in me to want and do what pleases Him. So now I’m to work that out into my life. He gives the instruction and the power. My job is to listen and obey. As I do this, I become a light in this dark world.
Thank You for salvation, Father. Please teach me to hold out Your light to others. Amen.
