“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 14:7-9




“We do not live for ourselves only,

and we do not die for ourselves only.

If we live, it is for the Lord that we live,

and if we die, it is for the Lord that we die.


So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

For Christ died and rose to life

in order to be the Lord of the living and of the dead.”


– Romans 14:7-9 (GNT)






Christ’s death is the price He paid for mankind, for me

– it is my ransom

which sets me free from the slavery of sin, death and the devil.


As a result of it I belong no longer to myself but to Christ.

The new life – in grace and freedom – which He has won for me,

I must live for His sake.


We do not own ourselves,

we are not our own masters.

God has created us,

and Jesus Christ has freed us from sin by redeeming us with His Blood.


Therefore, Jesus is our Lord,

and we should be committed to Him body and soul.


Do I acknowledge Jesus’ Divine Lordship,

through the way that I live; my words; my thoughts: my deeds?


Am I committed to Jesus, body and soul?






Lord Jesus, I belong to You

and I want to live for You.

Through Your Holy Spirit, help me…guide me…strengthen my faith…

that I may truly love You

and fittingly respond to Your love.
