The will of God

The will of God is not simply a passive plan, the blueprint for his creation. Rather, very often the Old Testament describes God as accomplishing his will.  Yet there is a distinction between the sovereign will of God and the permissive will of God. In the term permission suggests, that God “permits” evil does not mean that He approves of it. It is easy to discern that God never approves of sin. In the glimpse of the sovereign will of God he has sovereign control that he exerts over nations and individuals. God's will is as vast as his entire plan for creation, and from the standpoint of objective content, it seems to be settled and unchanging.

The Gospels give us four different, yet not conflicting, accounts of the birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Matthew reveals Jesus has the King, Mark reveals Jesus has the Servant, Luke reveals Jesus as the Son of Man, John reveals Jesus as the son of God.

Thus, every word is provided for learning, teaching, correction, and for instructions for daily living.
