1 MY WILL “There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.’” – C.S Lewis – C.S Lewis THY WILL VS

2 MAN HAS FREE WILL 1 Corinthians 10:13 1 Corinthians 10:13 Philippians 2:12-13 Philippians 2: Peter 3:9 2 Peter 3:9

3 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. (The concept of temptation indicates choice. We choose to resist, or to indulge.)

4 PHILIPPIANS 2:12-13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

5 2 PETER 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (Christ wants no one to perish, and yet some will. Why? Some choose to not repent!)

6 TWO CHOICES Light or Darkness Light or Darkness John 8:12; John 3:19

7 JOHN 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

8 JOHN 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

9 TWO CHOICES Light or Darkness Light or Darkness John 8:12; John 3:19 Spirit or Flesh Spirit or Flesh John 6:63

10 JOHN 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

11 TWO CHOICES Light or Darkness Light or Darkness John 8:12; John 3:19 Spirit or Flesh Spirit or Flesh John 6:63 Rock or Sand Rock or Sand Matthew 7:24-27

12 MATTHEW 7:24-27 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

13 MY WILL OR THY WILL Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:8-3:24) Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:32-39)

14 CONCLUSION The choice of “My” will VS “Thy” will is significant with regard to the consequence of the choice made! My Will (Matthew 6:19) My Will (Matthew 6:19) Thy Will (Matthew 6:20) Thy Will (Matthew 6:20)

15 MATTHEW 6:19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. Treasure only on earth. Temporal, eventually destroyed at judgment (cf. 2 Peter 3:10)

16 MATTHEW 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Treasure in heaven. Eternal, and joy beyond measure.
