Living Large

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭1:21‬ ‭ESV‬‬

The Apostle Paul lived his life to the fullest. He had a passion and purpose that was out of this world. His passion was strengthened with love and his purpose was unyielded with determination. He lived for Christ.

If we were to live everyday like Paul we would be living large. Everyday would be to glorify God in all that we do. As a Christian, we should be motivated and excited about the things that pleases Jesus.

However, we have a worldly problem that keeps us grounded from living large. Sometimes we live for ourselves or for other people. We tend to please ourselves and others more than we please the Lord. We can all admit we have been there.

Let me ask you, are you living large for Christ? Are you pleasing Jesus in all that you do? Are you living life to the fullest like Paul?

I want to encourage you through today’s scripture verse to live large for Christ. Start today being excited and motivated to serve and love others like Christ does. I pray you receive in return the joy of the Lord.
