Lord of My Life

How to Engage with these Devotionals:

  1. Read the passage of Scripture. Read it once to get an idea of what it’s saying, then a second time to make note of what God could be revealing to you.
  2. Read the devotional. Take a couple of minutes to read the day’s devotional thought for insights on the passage.
  3. Answer the questions. Whether you’re answering them alone or with a group, spend time honestly answering the questions.
  4. Ask God how you can start applying these verses into your life.

For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.

 

-Romans 14:7-9

 

We spend most of our lives trying to answer what we’re on this earth for—questioning our purpose, skills, contribution, or legacy. It’s not crazy to desire a grand purpose or to want to leave an extraordinary mark on those around us, but we often put too much pressure on ourselves to figure this out. Scripture is clear that we’re here for one reason: to live for the Lord.

 

Romans 14:8 says, “If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” Whatever we do, we do it for the Lord. Some of us will have a lot of success in the eyes of someone else; some of us will fail in the eyes of someone else. Our lives are greater than what we do when the sun is up.

 

 

If you’ve ever questioned what you’re here for, the best place to start looking for the answer is in a relationship with Jesus. When you’re in a relationship with him and with his people, you’ll begin to see how God has wired you and given you purpose. When Jesus is Lord of your life, you’ll find that the answer to what you’re here for is answered when you’re loving him and loving your neighbor.

 

So, what do you think you’re here for? How is Jesus Lord of your life?
