As believers, we must live our lives for God! We should all know this, but do we do it? Do we love Him with everything or do we only worship Him on Sunday? Do we really live for Him or only during times where it’s convenient? We should be so wrapped up with God and His Word, that people will know that we have Jesus! We should be so involved with Scripture, His love, and spreading His grace that people will not be able to deny that Jesus is within us! This is how we should live!
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.” Mark 12:30
We are commanded to love the Lord with our hearts, souls, minds, and with all of our strength so in other words, we must love Him with every fiber in our bodies and with ever breath we breathe. He doesn’t want us love Him sometimes, He doesn’t want us to only love Him when we have too, but He wants us to love Him because we want too and with all of our lives!
I remember one time when I was seventeen. Someone came up to me and said, “I can tell you are a hardcore Christian. I can see it in the way you walk, talk, and your demeanor.” This was the best compliment I have ever received! Those around me could see Jesus within me! They could see my love for Him, my walk with Him, and it was drawing people in!
This gave me an opportunity to witness to her and to share the love of Christ with her. When we live for Christ passionately, others will see that for Christ will be radiating through us, and it will draw the unsaved in!
“For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10
When it comes to living for Christ, we should live to please God and not people. We cannot call ourselves a servant of Christ if we try pleasing the people of this world, for the people of the world are full of sin, but God is Just and Holy. We should aspire to do the things of His will, lead others to Him, and to live godly in all aspects of our lives.
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
No matter what we are doing, whether it’s eating or drinking, we must do all things for the glory of God! We should always be focused on giving Him the glory; therefore, we must watch the things we do or allow into our lives, for the things that we entertain can hinder our walk with Him. The more we hinder our walk with Him, the less likely someone will see Jesus within us.
We should live our lives in a way where everyone knows that have Jesus! No one should have to wonder, for they should be able to look at you and know that you are in fact a believer in Jesus due to Christ shining through you! When a light shines in the dark, people will notice right away, so we must let Christ radiate throughout us so the unsaved can find the Lord, for when we live for Christ fearlessly, people will be drawn to the one who has brought us joy, happiness, and a bold nature, so live passionately for Him!
