Summary: A well-lived life is a life that pleases God.

  Study Tools

We believe that every man in his sound mind wants

to have a well-lived life, but because of lack of

knowledge, understanding and wisdom, many live a

wasted life. Someone has said, “There are three

kinds of people in this world: those who make things

happen, those who watch things happen, and those who

wonder what happened.”

Apostle Paul demonstrated a well-lived life and

his example influenced many lives. How he used his

life revealed his love for our Lord and for lost

souls. Even in times of severe persecutions and

affliction, his deep spirituality was not moved but

led him to a higher level of rejoicing in the Lord.

What a joyful expression when he said with hope and

honesty, “I have fought a good fight, I have

finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of

righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge,

shall give me at that day: And not to me only, but

unto all them also that love his appearing.” His

life was well pleasing to God and worthy to be noted

by Christians of today.

Intense desire to live a well-lived life is a

sign of understanding, but burning desire to live

according to will of God is a true sign of godly

fear and wisdom. Serving God with knowledge,

understanding and wisdom lead us to an abundant

life. An abundant life is a life of service.

The great demand of world evangelization is being

felt today. Many open doors are waiting for

Christians to enter in but the sin of indifference

is a great hindrance that must be cleared. As we

clearly see the needs of hopeless and dying souls,

every Christian must consider what apostle Paul said

in Romans 12:1,2 concerning yielding one’s body to

the Lord as a living sacrifice.

If we really desire to have a well-lived life,

then we must be willing to learn what God wants us

to do for His honor and glory.

How to have a well-lived life:

(I) Surrender Your Life To God

Romans 12:1

No man could yield his life to

God unless he fully understands

the mercies of God.

*Bible verses to ponder:

II Chronicles 20:21 Psalm 136

(II) Don’t Be A Friend Of The World

Romans 12:2

James 4:4

We should not grieve the Holy Spirit for

He guides us to choose what is right and

pleasing to God.

Ephesians 4:30

(III) Be A Significant Part Of God’s Plan

Romans 12:2

The importace of commitment

Commitment energizes our lives to do more

quality works and greater achievements in

life. It also deepens our awareness

regarding our responsibility and

accountability.
