“Living Right”

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Living Right”

2 Corinthians 5:15 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

And He [Jesus] died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake.

——–

Further Thought:  Now that we have committed our lives unto God, what we do daily can’t be just about us.  No, in all we do, we must ensure it represents His Son Jesus. Remember, we are the salt of the earth [Matthew 5:13] and “ambassadors” for Jesus [2 Corinthians 5:20].  Now, let’s be clear: as long as we are on this earth, we are going to do things that don’t honor our Heavenly Father and misrepresent His Son.  The good news is God already knew that, and that’s why He sent His Son, who died and paid the penalty for every shortcoming we would ever have.  So don’t beat yourself up when you miss it.  Just confess the sin [1 John 1:9] and keep living, bringing glory, honor, and praise in all you do to our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
