What is God's will for my life? Posted by Oxford English Church

"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians 5:17

1. BELIEVE IN JESUS

"And this is His (God's) commandment, that we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment." John 3:23 "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 2:3-5

2. GET ETERNAL LIFE

"And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Verily, I say unto you, He that believe on me hath everlasting life." John 6:37:47

3. LOVE GOD

"The first of all the commandments is, Hear O Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength." Mark 12:29

4. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR

"And the second is like namely this, Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." Mark 12:31

5. LOVE ONE ANOTHER

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:34

6. LOVE THY WIFE

"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." Ephesians 5:25, 28, 33

7. LOVE THY HUSBAND AND CHILDREN

"I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully." "The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children." Titus 2:3, 4

8. LOVE YOUR ENEMY

"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. but I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye

may be the children of your Father which is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?"

9. FORGIVE

"And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses." Mark 11:25-26

10. TEACH THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST

"If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing." 1 Timothy 2:3-5
