Read: 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

One of the most asked question to religious clergy is, “What is God’s will for my life?”

Do you know God’s will for you is in this chapter of your life? 

John 6:40 tells us what God’s will was for Jesus.  “And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”   

What is God’s will?  For Jesus in this chapter of His life, it was finishing His redemptive work on the cross.  God’s will is the redemption of lost souls. 

Jesus adds to this focus when in Luke 19:10 Jesus says, “I have come to seek and to save that which was lost.”   

If that is God’s will, then the opposite must be true of Satan’s will.  2 Corinthians 4:3-4 reads,

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

God’s will is everyone sees Jesus, and Satan’s will is they are blinded.  What does the will of God and Jesus mean for your life today?


Dear Lord,

Help me to recognize opportunities to help unbelievers see the light of the Gospel.  Help me to tell others about Jesus more than my sports team, myself and my church.  Help me to listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and recognize the cries from an unbeliever who cannot verbalize their problem.  Help me to choose to study to be ready to give an answer to everyone that asks.  Lord, who do you want me to talk to today?

In Jesus’ name,
