Understand what the will of the Lord is.
It is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. This is the will of God, your sanctification. That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth … Therefore lay aside all filthiness.
Be holy, for I am holy. [ Jesus] said … , “For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.” Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
