http://bible.us/59/1jn4.9.esv In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
What does it mean to live? To truly live? Does that include many adventures, success, money? The bible teaches us that to truly live is to live through Christ. How do we live through Christ, you may be wondering. The bible says that we live because of God’s son Jesus Christ. You see, God loves us so much that He sent His son to die on the cross so that we might be saved from our sins. We are saved by loving God and having a relationship with Him, acknowledging and accepting that Jesus did die for us. How does this affect living through Christ? By having a fulfilling relationship with Him, we are able to have a rich and satisfying life. Our relationship is fulfilling when we obey and trust God. Now, this isn’t always an easy task. It is, in fact, something that I struggle with on a daily basis, but I an trying. I’m trusting in God with all my heart, knowing fully well that, “Nothing is impossible with God.”
Are you living a fulfilling life by living through Christ?
