What is God’s will for my life?

Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

“What is God’s will for my life?” That’s got to be one of he most frequently asked questions by Christians. How can I know what God wants me to do? Well, for starters, are you already doing what He said in the Bible for you to do? Are you loving your neighbor? Are you making disciples?

I’m not going to say that God doesn’t care about al of the little details in life, because He does. But if you’re going to make disciples whether you’re in Denver or in Scranton, it might not be the most important thing were you live. If you’re going to make disciples as a bus drive or as a doctor who travels to third world countries, God’s will could be either or. I’m not going to speak for God on these specifics. I will point out that when His basic instructions aren’t being followed and we beg Him to know His will on a decision, we might be asking in vain.

Every one of us is instructed to go and make disciples. The teacher, the student, the lawyer, the stay-at-home parent. We live out God’s will that all should come to salvation when we obey the Great Commission. It’s more important than which job we take or where we live. Wherever you find yourself in life, make disciples. Be present where you are and reach the people God put in your path.
