Living for Christ
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
14 Either way, Christ’s love controls us.[a] Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life.[b] 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.
Today was Labor Day a day most of us think of as a day to rest. Today has been one of the busiest days of the summer for us. My children and husband and I got to help serve a family who lost a loved one. We felt so blessed in doing so. After that we got to pray with hundreds of students for 4 awesome boys who we have grown to love. My son went to Iowa City and Des Moines with his aunt and uncle to visit 2 of the boys . We felt honored to be a part of anything that would bring healing to these two young men. God is able and amazing. We are standing in faith with them. I am not trying to brag about what we have done. I am simply trying to paint a picture of what living for Christ is.
Loving people, helping others and telling them about Jesus. It is easy to live for Christ with the right attitude. Get outside of yourself and see how differently you look at living for Christ.
