WHAT ARE WE REALLY LIVING FOR?

 

1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

The question is why were we created?

At the end of our life here on earth, will we be able to say that I made the most of my life?

1- First of all, I think we all need to be reminded of why our sole purpose in life is to Glorify God.
Life is not a right but it is a privilege God has given to us.

As a Christian you are not your own.

1 Corinthians 5:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you  have received from God?  You are not your own.
V. 20 You were bought at a price.  Therefore honour God with your bodies.

In other words there has been change of ownership, you use to live your life the way you please but now, you are a New Creation.  You belong to God!

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a New Creation; the old has gone, the new has come.

Power and slavery to sin is broken.  You are free to Focus on God instead of self and you are dead to the world.

Galatians 2:19-20 For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God.  I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me.  The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

We live not for our Passion’s and will but God’s.  As a New Creation know that you are Christ Ambassadors

2 Corinthians 5:20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us.

Ambassadors carry instructions of their Country, they don’t do their own things, or what they feel like, or what they assume best.  No!  Otherwise they will be replace.

Paul said in  1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

We are to live each moment for the Glory of God.  Are you?  If not you can pray the prayer below so that The Holy Spirit can Help you to live each moment for the Glory of God.

Dear Heavenly Father I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ.  Your word says…”whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (John 6:37).  Lord I have been a sinner, forgive me of all my sins, write my name in the book of life and cancel my name from the book of death. Give me the grace to be faithful until the end.  Amen

You are now a New Creation.  Live your life each moment for the Glory of God in Jesus Name.

If you have prayed this prayer please send us a email so we can continue to pray for you.

Shalom!
