Thought for the week

What Do You Live For?


I saw an advertisement in a computer magazine with a photo of a guy shaving. It asked the question "Is it an alarm or a calling that gets you out of bed in the morning?" That is a very good question. What do you live for? What makes you tick? What do you get up for in the morning?

All of us have something or someone we live for. Some passion, ideal, that drives us on, giving our lives purpose, some sense of meaning, raising it above the level of mere existence. We don't want our lives on this earth to be some temporary "blip on the screen."

Paul's passion was Jesus. The apostle wrote, in Philippians 1:21, "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Paul of course used to be known as the notorious Christian killer, Saul of Tarsus. But Saul met the risen Lord on the Damascus road and had his life forever changed. Now he would serve Jesus with as much passion as he once served Satan. Can you imagine what a different world we'd live in if more Christians served the Lord with the same level of commitment that they used to serve the devil with?

There are two questions every believer should ask. Saul asked two questions on the day of his conversion. "Who are you, Lord?" and "What will you have me to do?" Those would be great questions for you to personally ask Jesus today. Let that calling to serve Him get you up in the morning instead of an alarm clock. He has a plan and purpose for you today.
