God's Will Part 2

     So, awhile back I wrote about God's Will and wondering what it was. I shared some verses that talked about what God wants to see in our lives. Here is the continuation.

 1 John 5:2-3
  "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.

God's Will: Love God. Then it says to obey His commands which you find in His Word. My favorite part is this, "And His commandments are not burdensome."!!! 

2 Peter 1:5-10
"For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,  and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.  For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.  Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall."

God's Will: Virtue, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, and affection and love for others.  

Zechariah 7:9-10
“Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another,  do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.”

God's Will: Honesty, Kindness, Mercy.
