Similar Reflections


"To me, 'life' means Christ." —Philippians 1:21

I live in Jesus, Who has completely changed my life. "Those things I used to consider gain I have now reappraised as loss in the light of Christ. I have come to rate all as loss in the light of the surpassing knowledge of my Lord Jesus Christ. For His sake I have forfeited everything; I have accounted all else rubbish so that Christ may be my Wealth" (Phil 3:7-8).

I find my life at the foot of His cross. "I have been crucified with Christ, and the life I live now is not my own; Christ is living in me. I still live my human life, but it is a life of faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me. I will not treat God's gracious gift as pointless" (Gal 2:19-21).

I find my life in Jesus, Who came that I "might have life and have it to the full" (Jn 10:10). "I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, Who has strengthened me" (1 Tm 1:12). "In Him Who is the Source of my strength I have strength for everything" (Phil 4:13).

Jesus, I draw my life from Your resurrection from the dead (1 Pt 1:3). I rejoice in You, Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life (Jn 11:25). You came to give me eternal life (Jn 3:15), and I hope to spend eternity gazing upon Your face (1 Cor 13:12). You are Life (Jn 14:6), and You are my life.

"My soul longs for You," O Jesus (Ps 42:2). You are the Author of my life (Acts 3:15), and I give my life to You. To me, life means You (Phil 1:21).

Prayer: "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit" (Acts 7:59).
Promise: "For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled and he who humbles himself shall be exalted." —Lk 14:11
Praise: "He is the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords Who alone has immortality and Who dwells in unapproachable light, Whom no human being has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and everlasting rule! Amen" (1 Tm 6:15-16).
