Found: God’s Will – Book Review

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is – Ephesians 5:17

Often in life we go along some line of thought all the while thinking we’re asking the right questions. What person should you marry? What job should you take? Where should you live? What is God’s will for my life? Yet others might ask God for more strength, or more of the Holy Spirit or more guidance. Those and many other requests and questions like these are common but are they the right things to be asking? John answers that question with the simple words of scripture in Found: God’s Will.

John gives us 5 examples of God’s will, and that is, that you be saved, Spirit-filled, sanctified, submissive and suffering. It’s interesting too that John points out the distinction between having the spirit as all those in Christ do and being filled with the spirit and how that is made possible to you.

Probably the hardest of these principles for many Christians will be sanctification given all the world throws our way. John uses 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 and substitutes the word sanctification for pure which is all about abstaining from fornication, controlling your body, subduing your passions and treating others fairly. In truth separating yourself from the world.

It’s such a small book, really booklet (a mere 75 pages 18cm × 11cm) for a small price and could be read in one sitting quite easily but it offers a powerful message particularly more so now in this age of confusion about what it is that God truly wants from you and for you.
