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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Christ died for all,

so that those who live should no longer live for themselves,

but only for Him who died and was raised to life for their sake.

.

– 2 Corinthians 5:15 (GNT)

St. Francis de Sales TEACHES AND GUIDES US…

.

“It is easy to see, Christians,

what Christ desired by dying for us.

What did He desire but that we should become like Him?

.

‘That those who live should no longer live for themselves,

but only for Him who died and was raised to life for their sake.’

How powerful a consequence is this in the matter of love!

.

Jesus Christ died for us;

by His death He has given us life;

we only live because He died;

He 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.”

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Help me be more like You.

Help me commit myself to always seek to love You like You have loved me,

and to live for You and in You.
