Live for Christ

Posted on

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:3

The most rewarding life we can live on this planet is to live for Christ, otherwise we could be sharing our life with Christ. Christ can guide us through life with a divine purpose that gives us a fulfilling life.  People think they will give up their physical self-will when they live for Christ, but it is just the opposite, we are living for our own spiritual will.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full. (John 10:10) Life to the full only comes when we live for Christ, because that is how we are created to live. Living for Christ brings joy to our soul, but Satan has us seeking temporary joy to our flesh. Christian’s seek divine blessings for their soul, with lasting joy and peace from God.

Praise the Lord. Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands. (Psalm 112:1) There is no greater blessing than the lasting blessings that God feeds into our soul. That is how the apostle Paul was content in all circumstances, even with all difficulties he went through. With God’s divine blessings, living for Christ, and knowing Heaven is our home; we overcome the world.

Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4) When we overcome the world we no longer live in fear, even if our flesh is killed. We never die because our spirit lives forever; we are a spiritual person waiting for Christ to return and take is home, with a new younger body that never ages and has no pain.

You shall have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3} We live, we work, and we take vacations, but Christ is always with us, and we reflect Christ in all circumstances in our life. We live for Christ by being a light in this world, and light overcomes the darkness of Satan.

Today give Christ priority in your life and let Him and His Word guide you through each day. Seek to do what Christ desires in all situations.

Prayer:  Lord, help me to live for Christ in every situation in life. In Jesus name, Amen
