What have you done for me lately?


I was listening to a song this afternoon that talked about how if Jesus had gone through all that pain and suffering for me to have life, then surely I can endure whatever inconveniences and pain I may face for him.

I took a moment to think about that: I tried to remembered all the scriptures I have read about the crucifixion and the movies I have watched that depicts the death of Jesus. Honestly I can say I have not faced half of what Jesus did for me.

If he laid down his life for me, surely I can live my life in line with his precepts. If he took on the form of man to save me, surely I can take on the godliness of God to please him. If he was beaten so I could have health, surely I can abstain from things that defile my body. If God gave up his life so that I can have life, the least I can do is live that life in absolute respect for him.

If he could do all that in love, surely I can make some sacrifices for him also. I took a good look at myself and wondered, “what have I sacrificed for God lately?”

It’s a good question to ask yourself from time to time.
