We tend to over complicate the will of God. Too often, we wrongly interpret Romans 12:2 to imply there are degrees of being in the will of God, beginning with what is merely good, to acceptable, to that which is perfect. These are not stages of God’s will. These are three words, all of which describe the will of God!
Paul told us to die to self and renew our mind as the preparation toward knowing God’s will. Dying to self and being alive to God ensures that we are not acting from selfishness. When we renew our mind, we take our perspective on all things from God’s Word.
God’s will is good, not because we deem it to be good, but because His Word has deemed it to be good. We also realize God’s will is good for us. It’s not simply doing the right thing to be right; it’s about enjoying a quality of life! When God’s Word is not the foundation for determining His will, we have become a god to ourselves! God’s will is acceptable and pleasing to Him; it can’t please Him if it contradicts His expression of truth revealed in Jesus. The word perfect means: complete. Completion occurs when love is the motivating factor, therefore, value and preciousness are expressed to all involved!
God’s good, acceptable and perfect will for us is that we be like Jesus, treating people the way He did, making all decisions from His truth and always motivated by love. It is not love if it is not based on God’s Word; God’s Word is not truth if it is not motivated by love. Herein, is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God!
