Sometimes, in pursuit of Christ, turning from the desires of the flesh and pursuing the God’s righteousness, it can still be difficult to be completely certain of what God’s will is for our lives in specific situations.
I want to choose God’s will over my will in every decision I face, because I know that He knows what is best for me and all the people in my life.
Recently, in reading John 15, God has shown me His guidance that clarifies His will in every decision, through what Jesus says and shows us through His own life. And it is so beautifully true:
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father, I have made known to you…. This is my command: Love each other.”
John 15: 9 - 17
