A Verse to Live By...

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised.” –2 Corinthians 5:14-15 [ESV]

I read this verse earlier this month during one of my daily quiet times, and since then I have been striving to live by it. Christ died so that I would no longer live for myself nor for the sinful ways of this world. He desires that I have a relationship with Him, and through that relationship I live for Him according to His purpose for my life.
