What I Read Today;
Exodus 39-40; Psalm 37; Isaiah 4; Mark 9; 2 Corinthians 5
What motivates Christians? How does knowing Christ as Lord and Savior change your view of other people? What does the Love of Jesus Christ mean for you personally?
These questions haunt most of our churches. We tend to view our faith as something to be done on Sunday morning. That thing we do for God.
But Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5 vs. 14-15, “For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. And he died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them.” NRSV
If we are followers of Jesus Christ, then that must affect how we live. The idea of being a Christian is to live a life of love for Jesus Christ.
Does Jesus impact your life on a day to day basis?
Do you treat people differently because of Jesus?
Do you pray?
Do you strive to make God happy?
Do you focus your hope on the one who gave his life for you?
