How do we Know God’s Will?

The Bible mentions “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” The Bible says that the Spirit of God bubbles up within you like a spring of living water. Jesus said, in Luke 17, “The kingdom of God is within you.”

We need to trust that this is true, and learn how to listen to the “still, small voice.” Some people disagree, saying, “That inner voice stuff is too subjective. The Bible is our only objective guide.” Well, that Bible to which they refer says otherwise.

If you loved someone, would you be content to communicate by letter or email or FB, and never be with the person, in person?

Will you make mistakes? Of course you will. So? Everyone makes mistakes. God knows we make mistakes. Somehow we all seem to manage.

Paul said that gentiles have God’s will written on their hearts. How do people who have never heard the name of Christ know God’s will? That they should love others? That they should not think too highly of themselves?

Ultimate Reality always has a witness, a way of communicating with us, even when people understand it differently.

About Ron Goetz

My first wife used to say, "There's nothing so sacred that Ron won't pick it apart." My desire to be a pastor -- that was a temperamental mismatch. She was so patient. If my birth mother had lived somewhere else, maybe I would've become a cold case detective. But I would have had to be J instead of a P, I think. And that mid-life reevaluation, starting adolescence as a GARB fundamentalist and transitioning to a non-theist, that gave me an unusual skill set.
