How peculiar to say “you only live once” as an excuse to throw it away.
Living for the moment…and what makes me happy right now…makes my life about me.
Living for the future where I’ll spend eternity… and working to gain a faithful crown makes my life about Christ.
Paul said, “Yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”
It’s not about me.
It’s not about you.
Remember my world and your world should revolve around Christ.
Yes, you only live once…so choose very carefully.
Hollywood produces movies where characters throw caution to the wind and they live only for the moment. They party now, enjoying things that feed their fleshly desires, and forget the consequences. They say, “Just follow your heart and you’ll do the right thing.”
This is bad advice because God’s Word tells us that our heart can deceive us. [Jeremiah 17:9
] We need God’s wisdom daily… and we can only get that through reading His Word, praying and yielding to the Holy Spirit.
Don’t wait for New Year’s day to make new resolutions to turn your life around. Starting today…this week…this year…and beyond…make it all about Jesus Christ. Live by faith….live for Christ. You only have one life to live… and only what’s done for Christ will last.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ
liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the
faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
– Galatians 2:20
Have a great week ahead,
