“For to me, to live is Christ.” – Philippians 1:21
Too many people live purposeless lives, passing through life with superficial goals. But this type of life cannot bring real satisfaction. Real joy and fulfillment come from having a goal in life that pleases Christ.
Your goal should be to live your life in God’s grace, for His glory. You will not be a spiritual person only when the mood strikes you; your faith will remain constant in spite of your fluctuating emotions. Living for Christ means committing your spirit, soul and body to Him.
If you live for Christ, He will be alive to you and you will know the ecstasy of a life poured out before God as a thank-offering. Accept the gift of Himself in your life and allow Him to live through you. Then for you, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Holy Jesus, live in me so that I will do all things for your glory. Amen.
