Some days I think I’m a Christian. Other days I wonder if I even have a clue what that means. I pray in the Lord’s prayer that ” Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. If Jesus’s will was that God’s will be done, then I, as a follower of Christ, should also desire that God and only God’s will be done. I am responsible, to the best of my human capabilities, to see that come into fruition in my own life on a day to day basis. But do I?
Do I even know what God’s will is? And, if I do, then I am responsible to do it the moment I know what it is for that particular moment/circumstance. But do I?
But before I can know God’s will, I have to know God personally, intimately. And then and only then can I know God’s will. But do I?
Is that the life beat of my heart, that His will be done and that I love whatever He loves? But do I?
Do I believe that there’s not one iota of righteousness in me and that only God is righteous?
When I am ABLE to see the truth, then I will SEE the truth; when I DESIRE the truth, then I am ENABLED to see the truth to paraphrase George MacDonald in “The Elect Lady”. And, it’s Truth that sets me free and that Truth is a person, Jesus the Christ. How do I have God’s presence in my life, by knowing and doing His will. In short, in obedience to whatever it is that he tells me to do. But do I?
