The Importance of Doing God's Will

As he moved on, Jesus saw a man named Matthew at his post where taxes were collected. He said to him, "Follow Me." (Matthew 9:9)
  As Jesus called St. Matthew (and his other disciples) to follow Him, he also calls us to follow Him.
  In John 6:38 Jesus says: ...it is not to do my own will that I have come down from heaven, but to do the will of Him who sent Me.
  So, if we are to follow Jesus, and Jesus did what the Father wanted Him to, then our goal should also be to do the will of God the Father in our lives.
  Jesus calls us to follow Him. If we want to follow Him, then we should live our lives as He lived His life--in obedience to the Father's will.
