“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." (Matthew 7:21, New King James Version).
The will of the Father is for man to live a life that will glorify His Holy Name. A life that portrays sincerity to The Call of God. A life that glitters and radiates the Light "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:14-16).
Let us glorify God in all our endeavours/undertakings. It does not matter where we find ourselves or in what situation; our God must always be glorified. Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God(1 Corinthians 10:31). And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Colossians 3:17). And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality (Colossians 3:23-25).
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work." (John 4:34).
Jesus was found doing good everywhere he went. He started young at the age of twelve to spread the Gospel. He preached The Word with zeal even at a tender age. Jesus associated hearing The Word with the doing of the Word. He also referred to the hearers and the doers as His fellow Kingdom Citizens. Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd. And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You.”But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.” (Luke 8:19-21).
The Mission of Jesus on Earth was to do God's Will. "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:38-40). The Life of Jesus was spent on giving man a second chance. The Glory of God is seen when the beauty of righteous living is exhibited in man.
Man needs to emulate Christ in doing the Will of the Father. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh." (2 Corinthians 4:11).
Jesus preached to every available individual in the synagogues, at homes, under the trees, by the sea shores, by the well side etc. He seized every available opportunity to spread The Good News.
Jesus did not exhibit any sign of partiality. He mingled with the sinners to turn them to saints e.g. Zacchaeus. He loved the unlovable.
Jesus humbled Himself even up to the point of death in doing His Father's Will in attaining Salvation for mankind. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be savedJohn 3:16-17).
Jesus actually simplified God's Message of Love for man and interceded for man to live in Love according to God's Will. "And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:26). Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”(Matthew 22:36-40).
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love(1 Corinthians 13:13). Love entails:
Loving God as true worshipers. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24).
Loving One's self. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good (Proverbs 19:8).
Loving others. My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth (1 John 3:18). "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35).
The Golden Rule: "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 7:12).
Jesus won souls in love to the Kingdom as planned by His Father. We need to uplift God's Will by sharing the Godly message through love. The people of the Kingdom are God's ambassadors on the earth and they are supposed to do The Will of The Father as Jesus did on earth. So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.” And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?"(Luke 2:48-49).
The Will of the Father is for us to humbly align our body, soul and spirit with His Kingdom principles: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:3).
