Show Notes
Part 1 of “Knowing and Doing the Will of God” A Series on Experiencing God by Rev. Dr. Robert Lee Key Scriptures: “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (John 17:3, NIV). “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Col. 3:17, NIV). Prerequisite: To know the will of God, we must first know God. Knowing God comes through a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ. • Recognize that you are a sinner (Romans 3:23; 6:23). • Confess (agree with God about) your sins (Romans 5:8). • Repent of your sins (turn from sin to God) (Acts 10:43). • Ask Jesus to save you by his grace (Romans 10:9-10, 13). • Turn over the rule of your life to Jesus; let him be Lord (Rom. 10:9). What is the will of God? It is to WALK in the WAYS of God (Col. 3:17) 1. Jesus is our model (John 5:17, 19-20). 2. The Bible is our guide (2 Timothy 3:16). 3. The Holy Spirit is our Teacher (John 14:26). The Realities of Experiencing God (three of seven): 1. God is always at WORK around you (Ex. 2:23-25). 2. God pursues a love relationship with you that is REAL and PERSONAL (Ex. 24:12, 15-16, 18). 3. God INVITES you to become involved with him in his work (Ex. 3:8, 10).
