Live to the Lord

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t just save people and then take them home to heaven? We kind of joked around about that in Bible College saying things like, “I’d love to have a save ‘em and slay ‘em ministry.” But if you really think about it, God could do that if He wanted to. There isn’t a special preparation for immortality that requires us to linger here. If the Lord wanted to, He could change us from imperfection to perfection and take us to heaven at once.

So, why then are we here? Would God keep His children out of paradise on a whim? Would He savor that we wrestle with life a little longer? Why is the army of God still on the battlefield when one word might give them the victory? Why are His children still wandering here and there when a single word would bring them into their hope of heaven?

The answer is really simple — we are here to "live to the Lord;” as sowers of the good Seed, as heralds announcing salvation from God, as “the salt of the earth” blessing to the world, as workmen desiring to take as many people to heaven with us as we can. We’re here to glorify Christ in our daily living.  

We’re here so, let’s fulfills our purpose. Live zealous, useful, holy lives, to "the praise of His glorious grace” [Ephesian 1.6].

If we live, we live to the Lord… Romans 14.8a
