The Living Will

Hello, Beloved Reader! I’m Faith. Thanks for visiting me today.

“And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” — Matthew 26:39

Before most people die, they write a last will and testament. A few last words and instructions perhaps. God is amazing. His will was written, lived, and taught by Himself. Now, how can I say that?

The Bible shows us His written will. God gave instructions and showed us what happened when people didn’t follow them. He spoke to certain people and they wrote down the words He said. God didn’t really take up a pen and write it Himself, but He used others to write His words. 

Our present shows the Master teaching us His will through the written will, through talking to our hearts, and through Jesus.

Jesus is the Living Will. Jesus, while on Earth, was the perfect example for us. He lived and breathed God’s will. He did nothing outside it.

That’s where we get the question: What would Jesus do?

Jesus would do nothing outside of God’s will. And if we strive to be on the same terms, then we won’t either. Granted, we aren’t perfect like Jesus, so we will mess up from time to time. But, we have to stay in the will of God. We have to listen and trust. We won’t always know God’s will. But in due time He will show us.

In due time, God will bring about His perfect will in our lives, and our lives will be better than we could ever have imagined.
