My Life For His is a declaration between you and the Lord stating you have made the decision to lay down the life you live to carry the cross Jesus carried. This is the basis for this blog.
It is a decision that challenges us to live a life modeled after Jesus’ – after the example He set. Although we don’t live perfect lives, the least we can do for the one who did is live for Him. Romans 12:1 says that sacrificing our bodies is our REASONABLE sacrifice. This means that this is the least we can do. The LEAST we can do is surrender our bodies (our actions) to His will. This is where the name was birthed: My Life For His.
We want to live the selfless, humble, and loving life Jesus Christ lived, walking in His footsteps. Jesus tells His disciples in John 13:15 “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” Jesus told us that His life was an example for us to follow. Once you believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, the next step is to decide to fully lay your life down, pick up your cross, and follow Him. This is a decision. I’ll go first…
Jesus, I decide to make you my Lord and Savior and by doing so, I choose to lay down MY life for the one YOU once lived, Lord grace me on this journey and let me ever feel your presence. In Your name I pray, Amen.
