Knowing God’s Will-Part 2

August 24, 2015

 

God’s will for our lives involves understanding people. If you do not have a basic understanding of people you will be afraid of them. Many people have a fear of talking to other people. How do you overcome the fear of people? This is how; you must focus your attention on a person’s basic need. What is the number one need for people? It is salvation. Why, because sin separates them from the God who created them and from the God who loves them so much that He sent His only Son to the cross to die for them. Their sin separates them from having a relationship with God and if they stay in that condition the Bible teaches that they will be cast into a place called hell forever and separated from God forever. God does not want that and the proof is that He sent His own Son to die in their place to pay for all their sins. My friend, salvation has to be entered into so that God’s will can be done on earth as it is in heaven in bringing people into a relationship with God. When you get focused on the needs of others and their need for salvation the fear of people will go away. See people the way God sees them. When you see things from an eternal perspective it will take the fear of man out of you.
