If you’ve ever felt alone, you’ve felt a lie…
For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
None of us lives to ourself, but we live to the Lord and we belong to the Lord! How wonderful does that truth feel! Don’t ever tell yourself that you are alone. Jesus became a curse, accepted death, and defeated darkness just so that He could take up residence in You. His sacrifice was too precious too ignore. He is with us always, and his presence is exactly what our hearts groan for whenever we ‘feel’ lonely. Do not feel lonely, but know that our good God is with us always.
We belong to the Lord.

Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.
This is our religion. One man, completely righteous, justifies and gives life to all others.

But thanks to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and become slaves to righteousness.
Sometimes it’s difficult to remember that we don’t belong to our old master, that amidst all the toil and pain we have already been set free from sin. Like, past tense. Like, it’s already all been done for us. Which it has. And now that we’re free, Paul has another piece of advice.
Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from life to death.
So, now that you’re free from sin, now that the bonds have been broken between you and sin, do not go back and offer yourself to sin. It’s crazy to think that everything we do from now on is an offering, either to sin or to God. That’s the awesome depth of the freedom God has given us: every action is an offering.
Who are you offering to?
Vivian Rosewarne is my hero…
…literally, because were it not for his valient efforts, the world might look very different today.
From the seat of Aircraft R3162 from No. 38 Squadron RAF, hours before his death:
The universe is so vast and ageless that the life of one man can only be justified by the measure of his sacrifice.
So much truth to this. Explains why Christ’s infinite sacrifice created the infinite justification of human kind, for all past, present, and future sins, whether believer or nonbeliever. Amazing.
