For Him

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

2 Corinthians 5:15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

Ouch. Jesus died so I would live for Him instead of for my own gratifications and goals. We concentrate on the fact He died so our sins would be forgiven and we could be reborn as God’s children and have eternal life with God. We forget we have been called to a purpose; the purpose of living our lives for Him and for His glory, not for our glory. Our prayers are full of “God, do this and fix this.” We concentrate on our wants and needs. Let us choose to learn to concentrate on praises and thanksgiving to God. It’s fine to express our needs but they should not and need not be expressed more than our expression of love, praise and thanksgiving to God. Our expressions of love are not only contained in our words but in our actions and thoughts to and about His other children. Jesus lived and died for us. Can we do any less for Him?
