"He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them and rose again."
- 2 Corinthians 5:15
 
The appeal of our LORD to serve Him in consecrated devotion comes to us with special force and emphasis at this particular season of the church year. In the first part of the church year we celebrate the great festivals of Christianity, Christmas, Easter, and now Pentecost, and learn what great things God has done for us and for our salvation. In the second part of the church year we continue to mediate on God's love and mercy toward us, but emphasis is placed also upon the . . .

In graitude to Christ, who died for us and rose again, we ought to  "live for Him." And what does it mean to  "live unto Christ"? Surely, it means vastly more than coming regularly to church and supporting the work of the Church with systematic offerings. Living unto Christ means surrendering ourselves, both body and soul, to Christ and His cause; it means rising above the transient things of this life and coming into a very holy and intimate relation with Him to whom we have vowed allegiance; it means willingness and readines to serve in the spirit of the Master for the temporal and eternal welfare of the bodies and souls of our fellow men.
 
Christian friends, When we think about our LORD'S suffering for us on the cross, we want to live for Him. After we have heard His words of forgiveness, there are things we just never want to do again, at home or in any other place.
 
      Down from His splendor in glory He came,
      Into a world of woe;
      Took on Himself all my guilt and my shame,
      Why should He love me so?
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - When we ponder Christ's love for us, we'll want to live for Him.
