What God Wants Most from You

July 7, 2014

What does God want most from you?  That may sound like a difficult or even a trick question, but it really isn't that difficult.  The answer is found in II Corinthians 12:14 where the apostle Paul, speaking under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, says, "Now I am ready to visit you for the third time, and I will not be a burden to you, because what I want is not your possessions but you.  After all, children should not have to save up for their parents, but parents for their children."

 

At the heart of this verse, Paul and the Lord say to the Corinthians and to us, "What I want is not your possessions [and not your service, etc.] but you."  Many believers live with a distorted view of the Christian life.  They believe that following Jesus is all about service and sacrifice, but here Paul is saying that being a Christ follower is about surrender.  It is about the will.

 

One of the greatest challenges for any us is learning to trust God.  I am convinced that it is a process and some folks seem to make faster progress than the rest of us.  But take heart and keep moving forward; you will make it!
