"ONE LIFE TO LIVE"

 
"God's kindness is an invitation to you to repent." —Romans 2:4
 

To those who have repented and totally given their lives to the Lord, to "those who strive for glory, honor, and immortality by patiently doing right" (Rm 2:7), the Lord gives eternal life (Rm 2:7). Eternal life includes "glory, honor, and peace" (Rm 2:10).

Although we are so small in the universe and our time on earth is so short, our lives have astounding and everlasting consequences. Therefore, we must make the most of this moment in eternity by loving the Lord with all our hearts. "What profit does he show who gains the whole world and destroys himself in the process?" (Lk 9:25)

Let us lose our lives by giving them to Jesus. He says "to all: 'Whoever wishes to be My follower must deny his very self, take up his cross each day, and follow in My steps. Whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will save it' " (Lk 9:23-24). Let us accept Jesus as our Lord, Savior, and God on His terms. Let us choose Jesus as our Life (Jn 14:6).

 
Prayer: Jesus, I am all Yours.
Promise: "Only in God is my soul at rest; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Stronghold; I shall not be disturbed at all." —Ps 62:2-3
Praise: Pope St. Callistus I kept the faith through the experiences of being a slave, fugitive, prisoner, and free man.
