Living a life for God is one of the difficult tasks for today’s younger generation. This world is filled with sin, pleasure and everything that could drag people from getting near to God or living for God. One of the biggest questions that most Christian Youth have in their mind is that it is possible to live for God in this sinful world? If so How to live for God?
God has a mighty plan over you and living for God means that you need to fulfill the expectation or plan which God has been set over you. This could be achieved only if you live for God or live with God. This world brings you forth several things taking you out of God’s plan in you, but God has given you all the strength to overcome these circumstances in your life. In Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. This is a powerful verse which strengthens and encourages you in the face of trouble to live for God. You are in His hands, He will help you in the portions which you are struggling through.
Do the Will of God
To live for God the basic thing which you need to stick with it strongly is doing the will of God and having faith in God that whatever God does in my life will be for good. There is free will or God’s Will. You have choices to opt for whichever but the choice is yours. God send His son Jesus and He did the purpose of the Father.
When God touched Paul in Damascus the first thing which he asked “What should I need to do”. He surrendered completely to the Lord and God used him mightily in his hands. Throughout his life he did the Will. Doing the will of God is not so easy you have to sacrifice, you have to give up your desire but the end is going to be mighty.
Completely Surrender Yourself
To live with God doing His will you need to surrender yourself and believe God is Hope. Surrender in sense 100% surrendering yourself not even holding 1% of your desires with you. Just ask God to take control of your Life. He is better driver than anyone else. If you given your life completely to His hands He will take full control of your life, Satan can’t drive you anywhere when you in His hands.
Confession of Sin
Confession of sin glorifies God because if you excuse your sin, you absolve yourself of responsibility and blame God for letting you get into a mess. First John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The Greek word for “confess” is homologeo, meaning “to say the same thing.” To confess means to agree with God that sin is all our fault and to repent. 1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
This is something very hard when you are getting close to God. As a Christian Youth when you chose to go with God, you will be the one who will be more tested by the Satan to make you to sin and get away from God. But God expect you to be holy. Be holy, because I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:16). God wants a holy vessel for Him to use you mightily for His Glory. God can’t dwell in a place that is without holy so if you want God to dwell with you, it is 100% necessary that your vessel needs to be cleansed and be holy. When you are holy God does His fullest will over you and make you blessed for millions of people.
So if you do all the above said things in your life, God dwells among you, He will be taking full control of your life and He steers your vehicle where He want you to be. There is one life and it will end very soon what we do for Christ is going to remain forever when we go for the judgment. Amen!
