Our innermost driving ambition
« on: February 07, 2014, 06:07:30 AM »

All -

When I watch, listen or read Ray Teaching God's Truths, I believe his innermost driving ambition is to always obey God.

Mine is for aim to always please Him in all that I think, say and do.

What do you all believe our innermost driving ambition should be based on The Holy Scriptures.

George.

Hi George,

This is the first scripture that came to mind:

Eccl.12:13

"The conclusion of the matteróthe whole, let us hear,óTowards God, be reverent, and, his commandments, observe, for, this, [concerneth] all mankind." (Rotherham)

"The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man." (ESV)


However, the ability to do this comes with a caveat. 

Phil. 2:13

"For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure."(ESV)


Of our own, we can do nothing good.

Mar 12:28  One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the discussion. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
v. 29  Jesus replied, "The most important commandment is this: `Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord.
v. 30  And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.'
v. 31  The second is equally important: `Love your neighbor as yourself.' No other commandment is greater than these."
v. 32  The teacher of religious law replied, "Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth by saying that there is only one God and no other.
v. 33  And I know it is important to love Him with all my heart and all my understanding and all my strength, and to love my neighbors as myself. This is more important than to offer all of the burnt offerings and sacrifices required in the law."
v. 34  Realizing this man's understanding, Jesus said to him, "You are not far from the Kingdom of God." And after that, no one dared to ask Him any more questions.

mercy, peace and love

Micah 6:8- He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

v. 30  And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart (1), all your soul (2), all your mind (3), and all your strength (4).'

(CLV) And, You shall be loving the Lord God out of your whole heart, and out of your whole soul, and out of your whole comprehension, and out of your whole strength. This is the foremost precept."

(Jonathan Mitchell-NT)  'And so, you folks will be loving [the] Lord [= Yahweh] your God from out of the midst of your whole heart, and from out of the midst of your whole soul, and from out of the midst of your whole intellect (throughout the midst of your entire comprehension and full mental ability), and from out of the midst of your whole strength.'


For me, number 3 is the most difficult.

I like this one:

Eph 4:29  Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Eph 4:30  And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Eph 4:31  Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
Eph 4:32  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Iíve noticed that I have changed in many ways since Bible Truths and the forum and one of them is living life much too seriously.

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.

Hi George.



Awesome topic, George,

I want to say, what came to mind after reading your question, I would sum up the driving force in me by saying to you this.

Understanding in a clearer way, who God is, what God is doing with his creation and how he made me.

Itís no accident you or I or any of us are here on this particular site know as Bible truths.
For me , itís a special kind of joy knowing first it was God who called me, I had nothing to do with my calling.

2nd I know I cannot alter my future on my own without God directing my path. The driving force in me cannot be narrowed to any one given thing because everything is Godís doing.

He, God , dragged me to Himself, He, God gave me the desire to follow and itís God who also gives me the joy that comes from following and the security knowing He is a very loving God who has not forsaken His creation.

That He, God, our heavenly father will not and never had any intention of making His creation suffer in fire forever and that it was a hoax all along, passed down from those who use deception.
That we have not a will that is independent of Godís will , I could go on and on.

The driving force in me is God, and we all have one awesome God, who really is a God of pure Love.

1Jn 3:20  for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.



Great topic George.


Peace and love to all.  :)

The last "message" I remember from Ray before he went into the hospital for the last time was that he just wanted to do the will of God.  That's good enough for me.

Heb 10:32  But you must continue to remember those earlier days, how after you were enlightened you endured a hard and painful struggle.

 Many times I am in deep weary and are heavily burdened, and Jesus always to the rescue and gives me rest. Come to Jesus!
