The will of the Father

     

Set your heart on doing the will of the Lord.
No one wins a battle without first going into battle and no one wins a race without running.
Put your whole heart and strength in doing the will of your Father which is in Heaven.
First, the will of the Father is to have faith in whom the Father has sent, Jesus Christ, The Son of God.
Second, the will of the Father is to love all people including your enemies.
Third, the will of the Father is to do good to all people including those who hate you.
Fourth, the will of the Father is to speak well of all people including those who say bad things about you.
Fifth, the will of the Father is to pray for all people including those who persecute you and calumniate you.
Do all this that you may be the children of your Father in Heaven having done His perfect will.
