 2 And do not be conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may recognize what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.2

Hebrews 13:20-21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 20 Now the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you what is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.2 [A true Christian is crucified and purified by the grace of God, able to do God's will on earth as it is done in heaven; that is a true Christian's sole purpose: to pray, to speak, and to act as God directs, thus to bring pleasure, honor, and glory to God.]

Matthew 7:21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the kingdom of heaven; but [only] he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.9 [To do the will of God, you must stop fulfilling your own desires; you cannot do the things you wish. To know the will of the Father, you must hear Him teach you with commands tailored to your life's circumstances. To hear Him you must wait in humble silence while listening and watching; then you must obey what He commands you to do. The first commands you hear will require your repentance. That is the beginning of doing His will. You must progress until you are totally led by Him: only thinking the thoughts He provides, only speaking the words He tells you to speak, and only doing what He commands; then your words and deeds show the love of God to the world and bring glory to God.]

1 Peter 4:1-2

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same mind because he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin,

 2 So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God.1

Galatians 5:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another. So that you cannot do the things you wish. [The flesh with its lusts and pride wars against your soul, the Spirit of God, and the inner law of God in you heart. This war must be won by you to victory, the overcoming of sin, the world, and the devil — for you to attain freedom from sin and salvation. This can only occur if you do not do the things you wish; you must crucify your lusts and fleshly desires to then be guided in thoughts, words, and deeds by God. You must be led by the Spirit, following Him, which is doing His will, not yours; the man of flesh, your carnal mind, and your will must die on the inward cross of self-denial.]

Mark 3:35

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 35 For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and my mother!"2 [The will of God is done when God orders and controls all your thoughts, words, and deeds; which occurs after persistently and patiently waiting on Him in humble silence to hear and completely obey Him whose word is in your heart to be heard and obeyed. The first commands from God are repentance, which if obeyed lead to Him destroying sin within you. From the Word of the Lord within: "Faith is to hear the Word of God and obey. Hear and live; the Spirit gives life with every word heard."]

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5,7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 For this is the will of God: that you become holy [sanctified], so that you abstain from sexual immorality;

 4 That every one of you know how to possess [control] his own body in purity and honor,1

 5 Not in the passions of lusts, as the Gentiles do, who are ignorant of God. [Sexual immorality includes fornication and adultery; adultery includes looking at a woman with lust.]

 7 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness.2

Hebrews 10:36,39

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 36 For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise . [In order to receive the promised salvation you must endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience to crucify your sinful nature. Then you are righteous, permanently freed from sin, translated into His kingdom, and in union with Christ and God.]

 39 But we are not of those who draw back [don't endure] to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. [A believer can draw back into perdition before his soul has been saved in ceasing to wait, listen, and obey; or by failing to stay on the inward cross of self-denial until the death of his selfish nature, which requires patience and great endurance. The parable of the sower explains why people draw back failing to produce the fruit of the Spirit.]

Ephesians 5:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. [How do you understand what is the will of God for you? Continue to walk in the steps of faith by exposing yourself to His commands: waiting, listening, watching, so you can hear, see, and do what He commands.]

Colossians 4:12

 12 Epaphras, a servant of Christ who is one of you, salutes you, always striving fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.1
