The last couple of days I was busy praying – no, not to know the will of the father, but to do His will. I think many of us know the will of the father, but there is so much resistance in us when it comes to the actual point of doing it. I quickly want to share what came into my heart when I read the parable of the two sons in the vineyard again. ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” (Matthew 21: 28-31) It is not about what we say or would love to do, but about our action. Our actions speak louder than our words. I still remember when my mother at times asked me to do something and I delayed and when I was asked a second or third time I lost my joy of doing it and did not do it. Other times when I got up and did it, I received joy while doing so. Here is a spiritual principal. If we only do things because we have the joy to do it, or we do things we like to do, we will never experience the joy that comes from obedience. The joy of obedience doesn’t come from the result, it comes from being it.
