“Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. 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.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Christ died for us. He died in our place to pay the price for our sin. When we commit our lives to follow Him, we leave our old lives behind. Our goals, dreams and worldly desires are replaced by His goals for us. We live for Christ and His kingdom. The old life is gone and the new has come.
Thank You Jesus that You came and died on the cross for my sin. I ask for Your forgiveness for the wrong things I have done. Please come into my life as Lord and Saviour. Help me to leave my old life behind and live for Your Kingdom. Amen.
