Live a Life Worthy of the Lord
- What should we desire to be filled with? The knowledge of God's will, all spiritual wisdom and understanding. "For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 2:6) As a result of being filled with these, we may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way. What does that kind of life look like? Bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, and more (in verses 11, 12).
- Want to know God's will? "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing, and perfect will." (Romans 12:2) Mind transformation (by God's Word and the Holy Spirit) is a prerequisite to being fruitful in every good work and growing spiritually. To know God more & more and to understand His heart/will, we must spend much time with Him in prayer and in His Word. There are no shortcuts!
