DAY 11 SUNDAY: AUGUST 2019

LIVING YOUR LIFE FOR JESUS CHRIST!

And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again (2 Corinthians 5:15).

Jesus Christ died for you so that you will live your life for Him. Therefore, you are not expected to live your life for self-gratification but rather, living your life for Jesus Christ who died to save and set you free from condemnation. The Bible says in the opening text that He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ died for him in order to sustain his hope. A Christian should learn to live his life for Jesus Christ forever.

One of the ways to live your life for Jesus Christ is to please Him always. That is why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:4, “No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.” Therefore, a Christian is never a civilian but a heavenly candidate enlisted into Jesus Christ’s army. A soldier is expected to please his commanding officer. In the same way, Jesus Christ is our Commanding Officer in life and destiny; therefore, please Him in totality with your whole life forever.

When a Christian lives his life for Jesus Christ by pleasing Him in totality, his life will be fruitful in good work and abounding in God’s knowledge. That is the reason why the Bible says in Colossians 1:10, “That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” In fact, whenever a Christian walks worthy of the Lord, he pleases the Lord and also increases in knowledge daily. The life of a Christian becomes more meaningful, when he learns to live his life for Christ Jesus forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to live his life for Jesus Christ by pleasing Him in totality forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain (2 Corinthians 6:1).
