In the 'About Me' section of blogger, I have this written on my profile:
"I am a Christian and try to live in a way pleasing to God."
I was doing my bible study homework today and came across this:
"We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God" Colossians 9b-10
See that? My goal in life: "so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way". But did you see what came before that? I need to be filled with knowledge FIRST so that I may live a life worthy. Yet another reminder how I need to read my bible daily and get that knowledge in my head so I can carry this out. Such a simple concept yes. But a big revelation for me this morning.
So grateful that I have the Holy Spirit helping me and giving me understanding. God is so faithful!
