Verse of the Day

2 Corinthians 5:15

He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

2 Corinthians 5:15

Living for Him

Jesus Christ died to give us life. He died so that we might live. Through His death, we have received new life and no longer live for ourselves. Instead, we can live for Him everyday out of the love and grace He showed us on the cross.

So maybe you are wondering, How do I live for Him instead of myself? First, wake up every morning understanding that God has given you a new slate, a chance to start over again. Thank Him for what He has done and what He continues to do in your life. Next, ask Him to walk with you throughout your day and help you make choices that will glorify Him. Then, when you encounter trials or tribulations of any kind, reach out and ask for His help. He promises that you will never be alone. Come to Him in prayer often. Last, surround yourself with other believers through Bible Study and fellowship. Look for people who will encourage you in your walk with Christ.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
You are my joy and my strength. Walk with me throughout my day and teach me how to live for you. Surround me with others who will lift me up and help me. Amen.
