Live for God’s will


Saturday: The Goal: Live for God’s Will.

Saturday’s readings: Exodus 19-20, Deuteronomy 7, Deuteronomy 14:1-21

1 Peter 4:1-2 – Arm yourselves also with he same understanding… in order to live the remaining time in the flesh no longer for human desires, but for God’s will.

O Holy Spirit, when I was washed in baptism, you gave me a new name. Then and there you adopted me into God’s family and made me your own. Then and there you claimed gave me your name as my own name. Now my whole life has a brand new purpose and destiny. By my baptism, heaven is my destiny and my purpose is to live for you – all my life, all my words, all my thoughts, all my actions for you and for your glory. More and more, Lord Jesus, let me life and I all do glorify and honor you. More and more, Lord Jesus, help me to live my remaining days on this earth not for my desires, but for yours. Teach me to do not what I want, but what you want. Help me to do this, dear Savior. Amen.
