If the situation arose, could you give your life for Jesus? Or, would you renounce your faith? If you have died to self, then your life is not your own. It is no longer you who live. Gal. 2:19-20 tells us “For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Your life, once you are crucified with Christ through your baptism, then you now belong to God, and you are only a steward of your life. The decision is made by God, and you simply carry out that decision. Jesus said in Luke 9:24 “For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for My sake will save it.”
Paul said in Col. 3:2-4 “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.” So, if you were called on to give your physical life for Him, could you? Have a great week!
