Topic: PRESENTING YOUR LIFE
Text. : 2 Corinthians 5:1-21
2 Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
2 Corinthians 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
Jesus was our sacrificial lamb, with His life, He paid the penalty for our lives. He did not enjoy His stay on earth. Isaiah chapter 53 confirms that His life was too short, no luxury in His life. He was referred to as ‘a man of sorrow ‘, all for our sake. He did not live the life He would have chosen to live, He practically submitted to the will of God. Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
What does He, God, require of us? It is to live the life of Christ. Verse 15 reads thus: “….should not henceforth live unto themselves, but to him which died for them, and rose again.” This is not a plea or suggestion but, a command. God is instructing humanity to live like Christ. Notice this, ‘…should not henceforth live unto themselves’, that is, not living to do your will but the will of God through Christ. No longer enjoying the pleasure of sin, every ungodly act should be done away with, going forward. Commit your life to holiness and righteousness by abstaining from sin, dedicating your life to God saying: Lord,
reign in me, sovereign Lord, reign in me,
captivate my heart oh Lord,
let thy kingdom come oh Lord,
establish here your throne oh Lord,
let thy will be done oh Lord,
reign in me sovereign Lord,
Reign in me.
* Today is dedicated to presenting ourselves to God.
* Ask Him to take total charge of your life.
* Ask Him to renew your life.
* Ask Him to keep you by His side so that you will not derail.
