"The Will of God Part #2"
(The Acceptable Will of God) Rom. 12:2
Intro.: There is a man sitting on top of a moutain thinking, another man strugling to
climb up this mountian, to ask him one of the most thought provoking question’s of all
time. Why am I here and what am I supposed to be doing? The first part of the question
is easy 1Cor. 10:31. The second part of the question is a little more difficult, but can be
answered from God’s Word, here in Rom. 12:2.
Every Christian can be in "The Acceptable Will of God" by taking these 4 Steps.
1) A Step of Holiness
Exodus 28:38 And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of
the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall
be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.
1A) We have been Called
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a
peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out
of darkness into his marvellous light;
1B) We will be Chastised
1 Corinthians 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the
temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1C) We have been Commissioned
2 Timothy 1:8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me
his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the
power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to
our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ
Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our
Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality
to light through the gospel: Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and
a teacher of the Gentiles.
2) A Step of Hospitality
2A) In Our Giving
Philippians 4:15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when
I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and
receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. But I have
all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent
from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. But my
God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
2B) In Our Greeting
1 Thessalonians 5:26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
2C) In Our Gathering
Psalms 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless
come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
Psalms 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free
Psalms 51:13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted
3) A Step of Harvesting
3A) Speaks of your Wisdom
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
