10 … Let your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.
(Luke 22:42)

Many religious people exhaust themselves trying to know the will of their Lord. Consequently, laws and rituals came into existence to teach people to carry out the commandments of God as proclaimed. These rules and laws strictly demand, “do this and abstain from that.” In reality, no man can carry out the will of God exactly or know it precisely, for men are sinners and ignorant.

Blessed be God who released us from the pressure of the Mosaic Law and its heavy burden and sent His beloved Son to declare to us His Father’s will. He does not ask us to do anything to satisfy Him, yet He is the doer, the giver and the blesser. He is the merciful Creator and Savior. He does not ask us to do any conditional duty in order to accept us, but asks us to be open to His grace and accept His salvational work. He is the source of all gifts. He is decided to be merciful toward us, to bless us and help us. If we again fail in keeping His commandments, He forgives us through His grace and merciful love. Did you understand the will of your Heavenly Father? He does not ask anything of you, but He looks forward to blessing you, saving you and filling you with the power of His Holy Spirit. Your Heavenly Father wants to give you all that He owns.

There is a great difference between the principal of religion and the true knowledge of our Father in heaven. Our God is not a dictator. He is a compassionate Father. His love lifted His punishment from us and removed fear from our hearts. This is why we thank Him joyfully and search for His will to carry it out to the full satisfaction of His great love. We believe that His Holy Spirit empowers us to keep His commandments through the manifold application of His love. His Law has become our pleasure and life.

We pray also that earth be made more like heaven by the observance of God’s will. This earth, through the active work of Satan, has become nearly like hell. We pray that the saints may be changed into the likeness of Jesus Christ in their devotion and obedience. However, we are still on earth, blessed be God, not yet under the earth. So let us search for the will of our Father and do it with the help of His Spirit.

PRAYER: We worship You, o Father, because You granted Your Son all authority in heaven and on earth. He is our King and we worship Him. We pray that You will complete Your Fatherly will in our lives just as your angels carry out your thoughts. Please fill us with Your love and bring our friends and enemies into Your kingdom too that Your name be hallowed and that they may willingly follow the guidance of Your love.
