But do I?

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?

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
