slide2
When a believer is out of God’s will, he is a troublemaker. The dangerous life is being out of God’s will.
  • Attitudes toward God
    • Ignoring God’s will (4:13-14, 16)
      • Arguments revealing the foolishness of ignoring God’s will
        • Complexity of life
          • Apart from God’s will is a mystery
        • The uncertainty of life (4:14a)
          • Prov. 27:1 - Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
          • A farmer in Luke 12:16-21
slide3
The brevity (shortness) of life
        • Life is a vapor (Job 7:16, 7:9, 8:9, 9:25, 9:26, 14:1-2)
        • We count years at each birthday when God asks us to count days (Ps. 90:12)
        • Invest out life in things that are eternal
        • God shows His will in his precepts, principles, and promises, but most people ignore the Bible
        • Surest way to success: knowing and obeying the Word of God (Joshua 1:8, Ps 1:3)
      • The frailty of man (4:16)
        • Man’s boasting covers up his weakness
        • Man has neither wisdom to see the future nor power to control the future
        • Therefore, boasting is sinful
  • Disobeying God’s Will
    • People choose to disobey the will of God even though they know God’s will
slide4
Pride
      • 2 Peter 2:21 - For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    • Man’s ignorance of the nature of God’s will
      • The will of God is not an option, but an obligation
      • God’s chastening until your submission ( Hebrews 12:5-11)
        • Evidence of God’s love
      • Danger of losing heavenly rewards (1 Cor. 9:24-27)
        • Castaway – disqualified
  • Obeying God’s Will
    • Constant attitude of the heart
    • God’s will for all believers
      • We must yield ourselves to God (2 Cor. 8:5)
      • We must avoid sexual immorality (1 Thess. 4:3)
      • We should rejoice, pray, and thank God (1 Thess 5:16-18)
      • Every commandment in the Bible is part of God’s will
    • God’s will tailor-made for every believer
    • The will of God is a loving relationship between God and believer, not a cold impersonal machine
      • If disobey, relationship is not destroyed, he will be chastened like Jonah
      • A growing experience
slide5
We should know God’s will (Acts 22:14)
    • Will for those who are ready and willing to obey
    • Col. 1:9; God wants us to be filled with knowledge of His will
    • Eph 5:17: God wants us to understand His will
    • Wisdom –the what and understanding – the why
    • Rom. 12:2; We must prove God’s will
    • We must do the will of God from heart
