Free to Choose

"The will of God for our lives is that we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.  The most important decision we face is the daily decision to live for Christ and die to self.  If we do those two things, then we are free to choose between jobs and schools and locations.  God wants us to stop obsessing about the future and trust that He holds the future."  ~ Kevin DeYoung, "Just Do Something"

Walking In God's Will

"So the end of the matter is this:  Live for God.  Obey the Scriptures.  Think of others before yourself.  Be holy.  Love Jesus.  And as you do these things, do whatever else you like, with whomever you like, wherever you like, and you'll be walking in the will of God."  ~ Kevin DeYoung, "Just Do Something"

On Spiritual Gifts

"Many of our errors where spiritual gifts are concerned arise when we want to make the extraordinary and exceptional to be made frequent and habitual.  Let all who develop excessive desire for 'messages' through the gifts take warning from the wreckage of past generations as well as contemporaries . . . . The Holy Scriptures are a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path."  ~ Donald Gee

God's Will For Your Life

"God's will for your life is not very complicated.  Obviously, living a Christlike life is hard work, and what following Jesus entails is not clear in every situation.  But as an overarching principle, the will of God for your life is pretty straightforward:  Be holy like Jesus, by the power of the Spirit, for the glory of God."  ~ Kevin DeYoung, "Just Do Something"
