"The Will of God"

Romans 12:1-8 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness."

It's the Will of God...

1. For all sinners to be saved - 1 Timothy 2:4 "Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth."

2. For all saints to be sanctified - 1 Thessalonians 4:1-4 "Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;"

3. For all servants to be selected - 1 Timothy 3

You must be...

A. Converted
B. Called by the Lord
C. Commissioned by the local church
D. Constraned by the love of Christ
E. Clean in your living

(These are notes taken from a message preached by Bro. Ronnie Sutton at Faith Baptist Camp on 11-20-07.)

So this is the message that is causing all the mess between two preachers. The message was a good message I got to listen to it on the internet mostly sometimes you couldn't understand it on the internet. I agree with the message that is for sure, may God help us all to find the Will of God and get right in the center of it. Thanks for posting.

I listened to this message and I thought it was very good!! I hate it we didn't get to go this time. We missed y'all!! I hope you'll post more notes from other messages from the week. The internet broadcast wasn't the greatest when I tried to listen. It was breaking up. I've only listened to Bro. Sutton's message so far.
