None of us lives to himself…. — Romans 14:7-8
For we don’t live for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose — to be Lord both of the living and of the dead.
Has it ever dawned on you that you are responsible spiritually to God for other people? For Instance, If I allow any turning away from God in my private life, everyone around me suffers.
