The will of our Father, is to become His Will
To have a open heart,humility, is to walk humbly before Him.
To then couple this with hearing, listening to His voice, is to have our hearts tuned to the Living Word.
To then couple this with obedience, as James stated, doers of the Word, this is Faith and works in action, all in His grace. His grace is another term for His presence. We even used the term “they graced us with their presence”.
To then couple this with moving, speaking, demonstrating the will of our Father, this is His perfect will. Paul’s comment expresses this, Paul was a channel of the Lords will, and from this he stated “in Him we move and find our being”. This is found in moving into the realm of Spirit, and this is only as we come into agreement with our Father in Spirit and truth.
“two cannot walk together unless they agree” Amos 3:3
The will of our Father is that we become like The Son, in image, likeness, and Spirit. This is to walk in the same Spirit that Jesus walked in. This is the will of our Father, to allow Him to walk in us.
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
~ 2 Corinthians 6:16 b
What Paul is expressing here is the coming into the Lord and His Lordship. Thus entering into the realm of Spirit, and allowing the Lord to move in and through us. This is what it means to be in the body of Christ. It has nothing to do with this worlds systems, and everything to do with Heaven, the realm of Spirit.
“as many as are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God”
~ Romans 8:19
In the Lords beckoning call to “come to Me” He is seeking those who will abandon the ways of this world, and its religious trappings, and enter in His covenant relationship.
“Therefore (as the Holy Spirit says, Today if you will hear his voice,
Harden not your hearts, as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness:
When your fathers tested me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
While it is said, Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
For some, when they had heard, did provoke: yet not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”
~ Hebrews 3:7~19
Our Fathers will, is for us to become His will, living sacrifices in Spirit and Truth.
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.””
~ John 4:23, 24
