Recognising the will of God: Youth Service March 2014

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. — Ephesians 5: 15−17


Let us be wise and understand the will of God. This Bible text from Ephesiansis highly current and causes us to ask ourselves: “How can we as Christians live and act properly in the light of the gospel in our society?” The answer is: it is part of our personal responsibility to God to conduct our lives as wise people and not as fools.

Core Points

We act wisely if we strive first and foremost for eternal life, align our lives by the gospel, and humbly and completely rely on the grace of God.

We are wise when we:

  • Absorb the word of the sermon as a message from God addressed to us.
  • Allow ourselves to be led by the Spirit of God and trust in divine inspirations.
  • Strive for oneness with Jesus Christ.
