“Outside the will of God, there’s nothing I want. Inside the will of God, there’s nothing I fear.” AW Tozer
1 Thessalonians 4:3…7; “For this is the will of God, your sanctification(that we be set apart)…for God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.”
The apostle Peter implores us to be holy as God is holy. Holiness starts with us modifying what our desires truly are. No longer as a follower of God should I desire those things that trap men’s souls, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, or to be snared by the pride of life. Instead, my desire must be to be pleasing to the God of all creation. To be bound in a loving relationship with God that defies mere words and challenges human understanding. My desire is to be set apart from this world to want nothing this world values greater than the will of God.
All of this is made possible by God, in Christ Jesus our Lord.
