His or Ours?

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:18-19

Jesus paid His life for yours and mine.

Our lives are not our own.

Are we living like that is true?

Or is it our time, our money, our energy, and our gifts to spend as we want?

Should our lives be spent increasing our kingdoms or His?

Is this earthly life all about our goals, our comfort, and our happiness?

Are the children who live in our homes ours or His? Should we be raising them as we see fit or according to His will so they will be His lights in this dark world?

This Good Friday I'm reminded anew that my life is not my own.

The challenge each day is to live that out!
