Text: Romans 12:2

Study 1: Romans 12:2: The Good Will of God

The good will of God is that will of God that is followed and to be followed.

See: Matt 26:42; Is 64:4; Ps 27:14; I Cor. 12:18

James 4: 7-10; Micah 6:8; Eph 5:9-10

Guided by generosity – an end in view, a parent’s guidance

Occasioned by love – it is meant for good See Romans 13:10

Operational by the Holy Spirit – acting in harmony with God’s power

Dutiful by design – fulfilling your duty

Exemplary story: One father thought a day in the park had to be scheduled for his son.  He discovered the son was content to play in the parking lot if his father was along.
