God’s Will is For Us To Keep His Commandments
Ecclesiastes 12:13: Many of us ask how to know God’s will. We love God, but we are unsure of what he wants from us. King Solomon had these questions in the book of Ecclesiastes. He had tried everything under the sun, but he found everything was vanity. It is only at the conclusion of the book of Ecclesiastes that he answers his own question about how to know God’s will. In Ecclesiastes 12:13 Solomon says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” A key requirement for us to know God’s will is to know and keep his commandments. This is our duty before God.
God had provided us the Bible and his commandments so that we may know him. His commandments and principles laid out in the Old Testament tells us what God thinks is good and what is bad. The New Testament of Jesus Christ tells us more about God, what he like and dislikes, and what his will is for us. If we read the Bible and act on what the Bible says, this is how we will begin to know God and his will. He is the same today as when the Bible was written thousands of years ago. Knowing God’s will is only achieved through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This starts with knowing the Bible and the commandments as spoken by God’s prophets and Jesus Christ.
