Who Are You Living For Today?

There's a saying that I've heard that may seem trite, but it is definitely true: "There are only two choices on the shelf, pleasing God or pleasing self." It's so easy to start out the day by choosing to live for ourselves. Little decisions that don't seem significant: putting off devotions to watch TV or surf Facebook; ignoring someone with a need because we "don't have time"; putting up with inappropriate entertainment because we don't want to seem "uncool" if we object. There are opportunities everyday to show the world who we are serving. So I just want to challenge you to make an effort to choose to serve God today. Be selfless & Christlike in your words and actions. You can serve Christ, or serve yourself. It's your choice, but only One is worth it.

"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross." ~Colossians 1:15-17
