Prayer Prin. 3A: Making Choices in Godís Will C. Pat Lanyon
Review: Last time we studied giving thanks to the Father as related to doing Godís Will. We learned that the whole idea of doing Godís will includes first being a qualified partaker of actual Christian living. There is an obvious focus on the Father! We gain a full understanding of the Ďmysteryí of Godís will. We come to appreciate what both the Father and also the Son do together in revealing and enabling us to do Godís will. There is peacefulness that controls, a unity that unites if we walk in it. It is a calling revealed through "psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" Ė all of which teach doctrine through Godís Word. Works done which are Godís will are done through Jesus, Godís Son toward the Father in an atmosphere of thanksgiving! And we finally observed the concept of light and itís obvious contrast to darkness, when we think of walking in Godís will.
Prayer Text as in Our Notebook: Now that I have understood better what it means to truly walk worthy of the LORD , I shall be even more enabled to make key decisions concerning Your will for my life. You will moment-by-moment and day-by-day lead me for these CRITICAL CHOICES: I now must make...
[2B. Walk worthy of the Lord]
GE 2.18,24; 1 CO 7.1,7,24,35,40; MT 19.3_12
Most valuable gift I could give to them: My faith in God.
Genesis 2:18, 24
And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him." 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
1 Cor. 7:1,7,24,35,40
Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 7 For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction. 40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgmentĖ and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?"  And He answered and said to them, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,'  and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?  So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate."  They said to Him, "Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?"  He said to them, "Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.  And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery."  His disciples said to Him, "If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry."
 But He said to them, "All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given:  For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it."
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
