FOLLOWING OUR LORD AND GOD
The Lord our God undertook the extremely costly project of making salvation available to the human race.
He allowed Himself to be subjected to a frightfully brutal crucifixion as though He were guilty of sin as we human were.
But of course, He was absolutely sinless and yet suffered the death of the worst of sinners. In doing so, He paid the price to redeem us from the evil kingdom of darkness and into His kingdom of light.
We who believe in Jesus and the work He did on the cross to save us, are now in the kingdom of light. Now what?
Now, we must learn to hear the leading of Him who saved us. Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice." This means that every person who believes in the salvation of the Lord should be able to hear the voice of God.
Remember that His voice is described as a "still small voice" and hearing it requires quieting our souls to make out the words.
After learning how to hear the voice of God, we now need to learn how to follow the leading of the Lord.
Here are some examples of what you might hear. The Lord may say He loves you He may tell you to forgive someone in your life. He may tell you to call someone and encourage them.
As you grow in this relationship, the Lord will tell you more things about His word, about His plans and even about the destiny He has for you.
This deepening of you relationship with God will come about by your responding to His guidance and following His leadership faithfully.
The bible says that His "yoke is easy and His burden is light." Pursue this relationship with God with everything that you have.
There is no greater value than a life lived in the will of the almighty creator.
