We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.” (Colossians 1:9, 10 NLT)

According to an article at mastersinleadership.org, “10 Essential Traits of a Good Leader”, being clearly understandable is second only to being honest. Clarity & understanding is necessary, not only in business or education, but also in spiritual life too. Many have a vague understanding of God or the Bible at best, and yet keep stumbling along in ambiguity rather than pressing in for greater knowledge, largely because we either don’t like to read, are bored with church, or don’t have time to pray, the top 3 venues for gaining spiritual knowledge.

Paul’s desire & prayer for the people at Colosse was to grow in knowing God, for when we know Him & what pleases His heart, we will long to live in that manner. To know His will is also to know your path, your destined purposes in this life, and finding this brings much more satisfaction for life.

Come to church tomorrow, ready to experience God in the one place you know He desires for His people to be. Let Him, not you, place a desire in your heart for learning, growing & praying. God will give you the “want to”, then all you need accomplish is the “will do”! You are loved! See you tomorrow!
