For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.
Romans 14:8 ESV
Batteries have allowed us to have devices that are not tethered to cords. Our devices, to work the way we expect them to, are dependent on good batteries.
But the minute a battery doesn’t hold a charge any longer, it is thrown out. It’s life and use is gone.
There are many things in life like this. Once their use is run out, they are thrown away.
But that isn’t the way it is with the Lord. Paul said, whether you live or die, we are the Lord’s!
Isn’t that exactly what you want to hear? Isn’t that exactly what you want to know as a Believer?
God has you. You are important to Him!
But at the same time, He is the most important priority for us too! There is nothing else…NOTHING ELSE, that matters more!
If you live or if you die, all that matters is Jesus!
We encounter problems when we mess this up. We have issues when we put something else before Jesus.
Always come back to the fact that you are the Lord’s! Not in words only, but in thoughts and actions! Is that something you need to take care of today?
Father, thank You that I know I belong to You, no matter what!
