How Do I Get A Life And Live My Life For God?
Jesus replied, “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these” Mark 12:29-31.
Those who wish to live for God must seek Him in His Word. We must seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to apply the Word to our lives. Living for God means giving up ourselves and desiring God’s will, above all else. As we draw nearer to God and come to know Him more, His desires will more naturally become ours. As we mature, our desire to obey God’s commands increases as our love for Him grows. As Jesus said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command” John 14:15.
If I Want To Live My Life For God.
How Do I Do That?
Living for God is not memorizing and following a set of rules. In order for us to live for God, we must understand and know what He wants.
Jesus said, in John 14:15, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” So in living for Him, we will keep His commandments. However, notice the order in which it is mentioned. We first need to love Him and therefore, in loving Him, we will keep His commandments. When we say that we will keep His commandments, that does not mean that we automatically love Him. (I could obey our boss or teacher, but that does not mean we love them). We need to focus on what He wants: a relationship with Him submitting to His will and putting ours to the side. We will desire to obey His will more and more. We will want to know and keep His commandments.
In order to live for God, we must want what He wants. He will then help you to understand what wants us to do.
