Living for Jesus
Henry Drummond once said, “It ought to be placed in the forefront of all Christian teaching that Christ’s mission on earth was to give men Life. I am come, He said, that ye might have Life, and that ye might have it more abundantly. And that He meant literal Life, literal spiritual and Eternal Life, is clear from the whole course of His teaching and acting.”
As people who are alive in Christ we know who we’re living for—Jesus! We live for Jesus by being thankful. We’re thankful for all our blessings and the gift of eternal life. We live for Jesus by being prayerful. We’re praising God and interceding for the needs of others, including the need people have of coming to know Christ as Savior. We live for Jesus by being his ambassadors. Like a representative from the nation of our citizenship, we live in this world to show Jesus to others. “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. ” II Cor. 5:20
Life is a great gift, and eternal life is the greatest gift ever! Edgar Andrews once said: “The biblical concept is that all life, whether physical or spiritual, resides in God and flows from God—so that the life of all living things, including ourselves, is derivative from His.” From Him life comes and for Him we should live!
