“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” Romans 14:8
A great conviction every believer in Christ must have is that of not living for himself or herself. When you commit to Jesus Christ, and confess Him Lord over your life, you change everything about how you live. You are actually declaring that your life is no longer yours but His. Many believers have however not understood this truth very well; many live as if their lives are theirs. Paul, the Apostle, reminds us that whether we are alive or dead, it is unto only one person – Jesus Christ. As Lord over our lives, Jesus is our Master and final Authority. Are your actions indicating you are for the Lord? Are your choices portraying your stand for the Lord? Is your life showing that Jesus is indeed your Lord? Please ponder over this!
