I John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
We serve a Lord, a God, that gave His life for us. We are His servants. We want to do the same thing that He has done. He gave His life and we should do the same!
Too much of modern day Christianity is about getting. Biblical Christianity is about giving and serving.
Do we lay down our lives for others? Do we think of others as better than ourselves? Are we willing to be mistreated, abused, and used? Jesus was!
Consider today how you are living like a servant. Do you spend your time, your talent, or your treasures on others? Do you invest the lives of others? Do you think more about yourself and what belongs to you than others?
We are to lay down our lives. We are to sacrifice ourselves. We are dying so others can live.
Let this truth sink in today and seek to live out this truth by God’s grace!
