People give their lives to different things. Some give their lives in pursuit of pleasure … or money … or recognition. Some give their lives to pursue what’s in it for them in every circumstance. But Jesus chose differently. He gave His life to pursue God’s will and God’s best for you and me: freedom to live life in relationship with God. Many have followed in Jesus’ footsteps, giving their lives so that others would be free to live and to choose life with God. Will you follow in their footsteps?
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. —Romans 5:6-7
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for giving Your life for my freedom. And thank You for those who have given their lives for my freedom to live and to choose You. In Your name I pray, amen.
