God’s Will for How We Should Live

While doing some “Will of God” searching, I happened to land on Gloria Copeland’s blog: http://heart4myhome.blogspot.com and found this 1/24/2008 posting: 24 Things to Get You In the Perfect Will of God. Paul gives practical guidelines for Christian living. In essence, this is how God wants us to live. More to the point, this is God’s will for how we should live:

1) Rom 12:1 Dedicate your body to God.
2) Rom 12:2 Be transformed. Put on new man.

I’m an upper Midwestern guy who has recently entered the "Buick stage" of life and decided to migrate to Florida. This blog is an attempt to rectify discordant aspects within my Christian faith ... or what often feels like my lack of Christian faith. Things which make life more enjoyable include strong black coffee, charcoal grilling anytime of the year, putz'ing at a table saw, playing chess, a good orthopedic surgeon and an occasional IPA. Please feel free to poke around and comment as you wish. I welcome discussion and the insights of others.
