Living for God

Jesus died for you, the best you can do to reciprocate this great gesture is to live for Him.
Living for Him means continuing His lofty ideas and mission which He pursued while on the earth. It means being a representative of Him in every nook and cranny of the earth that you find yourself. It means letting His will, zeal, goal, reasoning, attitude, life style, vision and mission to overlay yours. It means seeing everything you have and everything you are as means to an end which is to live for God. This will make you to invest all the resources of time, money, materials, intellect, influence, profession, privileges etc as platforms to continue the lofty ideas that Jesus came to the world to pursue.

It means confronting everyone that is set to live against Jesus ideals by the power of the gospel, wielding the weapons of warfare. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to1the obedience of Christ” (2Co 10:3-5)

Every tongue that is raised against God has to be subdued by the demonstration of God’s divine abilities. The gifts of the spirit, the power of prayer and fasting, the living of exemplary Christian life style will all come handy in achieving this. Just like David silenced the blaspheming mouth of uncircumcised philistine called Goliath with a stone, if you will live for God you will have to silence the Goliaths of today who are making a mockery of the gospel of Christ by the demonstration of the power of God to heal, deliver, destroy, build, establish etc.

To live for Him, you have to entrench yourself as a god in your environment. The world cannot see Jesus physically in their environment; many think He is just a character in history; you have to prove to them that He is the risen Lord by exerting yourself as his representative. To prove that God is a powerful God you have to demonstrate His power. “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High”.(Psalms 82:6)

The world does not have the time to read the Bible to know about God but they can read your life.
“Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart”. (2Corith 3:3)

The best way to prove that there is a supernatural God is to walk in his supernatural might as a god in your generation. To proof that God is Omniscient, you have to display His omniscient wisdom to the world just like Daniel and Joseph did in their generation. When Daniel dug deep into the omniscience of God to solve the problem troubling his generation even an idolatrous king acknowledged that there is a supreme being. “The king answered unto Daniel, and said, of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret”. (Daniel 2:47)

When Moses wielded the power of God in Egypt, even their magicians confessed the supremacy of God over their magical arts. If the world has not known God, probably you have not shown them enough of God’s sovereign ability, mercy and kindness.
He died for you live for Him.
