Something to Live For

Something to Live For

“Unless you have found something in life to live for that is more important to you than your own life, you will always be a slave. For all another man needs to do is threaten to take your life to get you to do his bidding.” Martin Luther King Jr 

These words are a strong challenge to the current thinking of our prosperous culture which emphasizes personal comfort and pleasure as the primary goal of life. They also echo Jesus’ warning that if we do not give up our life for him, we will end up losing it. 

After Jesus rose from the dead he appeared to his disciples and gave them a mission: “As the Father sent me, I am also sending you…Go and make disciples of all nations!” Those disciples took their mission seriously – all but one was executed for carrying out Christ’s mandate. 

The mission Jesus gave his first disciples continues to be the same for his followers today. What a privilege! What an opportunity we have to live a meaningful and noble life! As a sense of futility and apathy continues to seep into the soul of so many people, Jesus offers a powerfully positive reason to get up every morning convinced our lives make a difference – that we very definitely have something to live for!
