Found: God's Will by MacArthur

Found: God’s Will: Find the Direction and Purpose God
by John MacArthur

Product Details

  3. Date Published: 1977

Point: The will of God is not some mysterious lost document. It has been clearly explained in Scripture.

Path: MacArthur walks through five primary passages dealing with the will of God. These inform the believer that it is God’s will that he/she:
Be saved (1 Tim 2:3-4)
Live according to the Spirit (Eph 5:17-18)
Live Purely (1 Thess 4:3-7)
Live Submissively (1 Pet 2:3-15)
Live in a way that accepts suffering (2 Tim 3:12) 
If the believer is living in this way, than in order to do God’s will he should just do what he wants to do - because he will want to do what God would want to do.

Sources: This is primarily based on these specific passages of Scripture.

Agreement: This was a helpful pastoral look at the topic of God’s will. It is short, so easily read in one sitting.

Personal App: Am I spending my time trying to figure out what God wants me to do in a specific instance, or am I living how he has called all believers to live?

Favorite Quote: “He had the idea that God wants to take robust athletes, break both their legs, and make them play the flute.” (6)

Stars: 4.5 out of 5

It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.
