In this post, we will be taking at look at 15 bible verses about living for God or how should we live our lives according to the bible. As Christians, we are to live a Christ like life with humility and love. It is the will of the father that we all succeed in life and that only comes from obedience to the commandments God gave us.
So as Christians, we are to do the will of the father, and we can’t act as the world acts or else we’ll grieve the Holy Spirit that was promised to us.
Now lets take a look at the key secrets to living for God and making it in life as a born again believer.
Be In Tune with the Holy Spirit
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. – John 16: 7
Here Jesus was speaking to His disciples that it was the will of His father, He goes back and present Himself after His resurrection. Then the father will send the comforter (Holy Spirit) promised who will guide the whole world in all truth for them that believe in Him.
The Holy Spirit is the only thing that is stopping the Anti-Christ from manifesting openly. But when Christ comes back to rapture His saints, then the Holy Spirit will depart earth and the man of sin, the son of perdition will be revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
How can we stay in tune with the Holy Spirit
1. By creating time to study and meditate on the word of God even when it’s not convenient.
2. You need to search the scriptures diligently to read what is written concerning you.
3. Seek guidance from the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal deep things of the spirit.
4. Let go of your old self and put on a new you.
5. Learn to pray continually day and night.
6. Learn to fast so it suppresses your human flesh and spirit.
Seek The Face of God For Guidance & Direction
The comforter will guide you but it’s the father that will tell you the exact way to go. In Psalm 32: 8, the bible says “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
Once you get direction from God through the Holy Spirit and you follow it, your life will never remain the same.
A divine direction will give you an edge over the affairs of life.
You will triumph and excel while others are complaining.
Lean Not On Your Own Understanding Meaning
If you want to live for God, you need to learn to put your total dependence and trust in Him. Proverbs 3:5-6 summarizes it like this – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Without God, We Can Do Nothing
John 15:4-5 reads;
v4 – Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
v5 – I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
