What Do You Want From Me?

What do you wantIn the last several years, when times were tough—those times when I questioned not only my faith in God, but his faith in me—I would often ask Him, “What do you want from me?” It seemed I was getting nowhere fast and doing nothing for Him… or me. Of course, He never answered. Or did He?

But these days I’ve come to the realization that I had things backward those times when I asked God, “What do you want from me?”. I have a good life. I’m not rich, and far from famous, and some parts of my life could be better, but all-in-all I have no reason to complain. God has blessed me with so much, and yet I have the nerve—too often—to complain. It dawned on me recently that God, who’s given me so much and continues to bless me with peace, joy and love—more abundantly than I ever have, or will, deserve—Is the one who should be asking me, “What do you want from me?”.

What God Wants Most

God is no longer a God of rules and regulations; He is a God of grace and love. In the days before Jesus, salvation was something one had to earn. When Jesus died for our sins, salvation was provided to us by grace. Grace is a gift, and when we accept it, we will live a godly life as a result of it. We will obey God’s commands because, by grace, it is in our hearts and nature to do so, not because we must do so to please Him.

I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing? Galatians 2:21
