Living for Jesus

What are we sacrificing for God?

1 Thessalonians 5:10

Jesus died so that we may live with him. God’s love sought union with us even if it meant death for Jesus. Do we then choose life with God or death by ourselves?

God loves us and is proven by God’s sacrifice. What are we willing to sacrifice to love God back? Can we give up our selfish priorities? Can we at least give up our time for God daily?

We can begin by just understanding what God did and is doing to call us back to God. A God who seeks to save us from ourselves. Can we see God’s love for us personally?

Let us find ways to seek God amongst our selfish concerns. Let us order our days living for God so that we are always with God. And so asleep or not, we are already in communion with God.
