Paul Compliments Macedonians

In 2 Corinthians 8:1-5, Paul brags about the Macedonian church’s incredible generosity.

He explains that this was only possible because it was the will of God.

Romans 8:26-28

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit  himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

And we know that in all things God works for the good  of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Sad Will of God

In Acts 20:25-27, Paul explains that he is willing to teach the will of God whether or not people want to hear it.

He makes his friends sad that they’ll never see him again.

But it’s God’s will.

Jesus’ “Will of God” Claim

In John 7:14-21, Jesus enters Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles.

Some in the crowd are accusing Jesus of false teaching.

His response is to tell his accusers to follow “the will of God” to test the truth of his claims.

This does not answer the question, “What exactly IS the will of God?” but it’s a start.
