“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 NLT
Christ died to give us a new life. New life in the here and now and new life in eternity with Himself. Jesus also gave us a new vision for our time here. We no longer live for ourselves but for Jesus and His Kingdom. We died to our old lives and we live in Jesus and He lives in and through us.
Thank You Jesus that You died to give me new life. I pray that You will help me to leave my old life and dreams behind and live out Your goals and dreams for me. Help me to live in You and for Your Kingdom. Amen.
