Finally, a simple answer to what God wants from you.

by Kevin on October 22, 2010

If you were to ask 1,000 cowboys and cowgirls what God wants from them and I bet you would get 10,000 different responses. You would hear things like: Be nice, don’t steal, love others, don’t get drunk, love your spouse, be good to your kids, help that homeless fellow that hangs out by Wal-Mart, etc. Those are all good behaviors, but God doesn’t want just good behavior, he wants something vastly more important.

Today, I’m not going to write a story to try to help someone learn what God wants from them. Sometimes you just have to go with the Word of God only. Read the following two verses and see what God really wants from you.

1 Timothy 2:4-5

4God wants everyone to be saved and to know the whole truth, which is,

5There is only one God,

and Christ Jesus

is the only one

who can bring us

to God.

Jesus was truly human,

and he gave himself

to rescue all of us.

(Emphasis was mine)

Have a great weekend everybody!!

    It’s real simple. God wants everything, hoss, He’ll take it ALL. Heart, soul and mind. And just set back and wait for what comes in return…it’ll be a good ride…

  • The simplicity of our relationship to God get’s so complicated sometimes. Even when he wants all of us, our obedience and dedication, He wants us to first accept His love for us.

    amazing words, thanks for sharing the scripture.
