What Are You Living For?
We all live for something. What are you living for? If you are going to make up your mind today to choose what you will live for, what are the things to consider.
How much that thing love me:
Did that person or thing die for me?
If an answer is not given to the question above, then automatically, that thing or person is not worth living for. Before you live for something you need to first check. Your life will be a waste when you throw it to where love is absent.
To some, it is their community. You can hear them saying “for my community, I am ready to die”. But the biggest question is; did you community die for you. if you community did not die for you then it is not worth living for
Some it is to religion whose leader has not die for anybody. Some it is to government service. They serve and die.
(Galatians 2:20) I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, WHO LOVED ME AND GAVE HIMSELF UP FOR ME.
Let’s admit that somebody die for you. like some parents, they live and die for their children. What kill them can be traced to the love they had for their children. But the third question is: did you father or mother raise from the dead
Did that thing raise from the dead?
If that thing or person love you and die for you but did not raise from the dead for you, then that thing is not worth living for.
Rom 6:9-15: we know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That’s what Jesus did. That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don’t give it the time of day. Don’t even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life.
Throw yourselves wholeheartedly and full-time — remember, you’ve been raised from the dead! — into God’s way of doing things. Sin can’t tell you how to live. After all, you’re not living under that old tyranny any longer. You’re living in the freedom of God.
Who love you
Who love you, die for and was raise from the dead? before you say I am ready to throw my life in to something, the above three questions need to be correctly answered. That is why Jesus and Him alone is worth living for. The Christian life is a life in which Christ is the one living and doing everything in us, with us and through us. your service to your children, community and any other thing will be unto Christ. it is call bearing fruits. you do all thing for His own glory.
Phil 1:20-21: I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Live your life 24 hours daily as a Christian
