Foolish?

So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Ephesians 5:17 NASB

I’m saved! Yah! Now what? Does that mean I can go on through life and live as I want? How do I know how to live a life of salvation given to me by the power of the resurrected Christ? Where do I go from here?

I don’t want to be foolish. I want to understand what the will of God is. The Bible is where I go. Daily. Sometimes more than once a day. Under the leadership of the Holy Spirit I grow in the knowledge of THE Almighty, Sovereign, Holy God. He tells me “to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”. I do that by reading the Word of God so I may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Added to reading the Bible I need to be in contact with God through prayer. Pray without ceasing.
Prayer before opening the Bible —
God, as I read Your Word, fill me with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that I will walk in a manner worthy of You Lord, to please You in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You God. Strengthened me with all power, according to Your glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to my glorious Father, who has qualified me to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Thank You God for my salvation and continuous sanctification. I surrender for Your glory and will to be done. Amen
Romans 12:2/Colossians 1:9‭-‬12/1 Thessalonians 5:17 NASB

🌹For this is the will of God, your sanctification;
1 Thessalonians 4:3a NASB

Sanctification: to make holy; set apart as sacred; consecrate.

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon
