Living like Christ Died

When you think about living and dying, it's not about how long you've lived, but it's about how well you lived. People will remember your faults more than the good deeds you have done.  Many people are star struck; they like to keep up with their favorite celebrity and what's going on in their lives.  It is missing the mark when you idolize and worship people.   Then there are busybodies that know more about your life than you may realize.  They want to run your life; they have advice for your every need.   When you don't ask for someone's advice, it's called MEDDLING.   People will tell you how to manage your life and they can't manage their own lives.  You can offer man advice for anything accept for how to live.   Because the world believe that you only have one life to live.  And it is up to you to be all that you can be, do all that you can do.   When you live without God being active in your life, you are living a dangerous life.   Because you should live in the perfect will of God.  We should seek God's purpose daily and give our lives to fulfill His will.   In the bible (KJV), Jesus Christ admitted that He was submissive to the will of God.  In St. John 5:30, "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."  Life is about fulfilling the will of God and being obedient to His Word.  If you want to know how to live, follow the example of Christ.  The first step is the changing of the mind.   Philippians 2:5-8, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in the fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."  We must live like Christ died.  First, Christ died being humble and OBEDIENT to the will of God, then we ought live being obedient to the will of God.   We must become submissive and make the sacrifice that's pleases God.   Second, Christ died FORGIVING those who crucified Him, while on the cross He said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do," then we ought live forgiving one another. Without God's mercy, we would all perish. Third, Christ died taking care of His RESPONSIBILITY, He made provisions for His mother. While on the cross Christ told one of His disciples to take care of His mother; and that disciple took her in to his own home.  We should live taking of our responsibility to watch over one another in Christian love.   Don't forget, we are responsible for the well being of our families and for our own lives.  Forth, Christ died TRUSTING in God, while on the cross in His last breath He said, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit."  Jesus died trusting God, knowing that God had committed all things unto Him. Then we must bear our cross and trust God with our spirits in His hands.   We don't know what tomorrow holds, but we can trust in the true fact that God holds tomorrow.   Christ is not looking for people to die for Him, He is looking for people to LIVE for Him...
