For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.

-Romans 14:7 (NKJV)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Our lives are to be lived to serve and glorify God – and in His strength and grace to serve others too. We are bought with a price and in all we say and in all we do – may we do everything as unto the Lord.  This calls for a consecrated life of singular devotion – a life whose purpose is to glorify God alone – until He is everything in my life and I am nothing. In whatever sphere of life we discover ourselves to be and in whatever trivial task we may find ourselves employed – we can only live for Him if we remain dead to self-seeking and self-importance and alive to Christ Jesus – so that whether we live or die, we do all to the glory of God.

My Prayer

Loving Father, it is my chief complaint that I do not love and serve You as I ought – I can only do those things that please You as I decrease and You increase in my life.  Please help me to shed all hidden pride and all appearances of self-importance  so that I may be used by You  – to live or to die to Your praise and glory – in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. AMEN
