“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 5:15




He died for everyone

so that those who receive His new life will no longer live for themselves.

Instead, they will live for Christ,

who died and was raised for them.


– 2 Corinthians 5:15 (NLT)






The new life in grace and freedom

which Christ won for us when He died for us,

we must live – for His sake.


We must therefore seek to become like Him;

act like Him;

love like Him;

that we might no longer live for ourselves but for Him.

If I claim to be a true Christian,

then I must seek this with all my heart and strength.






“Christ died for us, by us, and in us;

our life then is no longer ours,

but belongs to Him who has purchased it for us by His death:

we are therefore no more to live to ourselves but to Him;

not in ourselves but in Him;

nor for ourselves but for Him”


– St Francis de Sales






Jesus, my Saviour, thank You for having lived and died for me.

Please help me, my Lord,

and grant me the grace to forget myself

and the strength to truly live and act

in You

and for You.
