World – “Live life however you see fit”
God – “Be Holy”
There are Christians who think these two statement can be compatible. They’re not. Even as Christian we are not granted the space by God to live however we see fit so long as we “believe in Jesus.” When we determine to live as we see fit, we are placing our will above God’s and by so doing we have placed a god above God. That god being ourselves and our own desires.
Just as Christ prayed in Gethsemane for what he wanted, he nevertheless deferred to his Father’s will. Be deferring to his Father, Christ achieved the purpose for which he came. If he had not, I would still be lost. When we do the same, we will reach the purpose He has created us for. Should we not, much will be lost.
