Few more thoughts on the life we are living and the motives for the way we are making the decisions that govern all our actions. No doubt we need to ask ourselves the question concerning who it is we are trying to please and do our actions support our aims. The Apostle Paul wrote in   II Cor.5:14-15 " For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again."  Now here is the example set down for the child of God on how he should live out the remainder of his life. The constraining love of God confines us to the straight and narrow way of  living for the Lord Jesus and not for self. Not going about life in the pursuit of pleasing the flesh, doing our own thing, or going our own way. It's like what Paul said was the form of life he was living when he wrote," For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" Philippians 1:21. Looking back over the years of our redeemed life, the question is does it show that we live daily putting Him first in all of our ways? Can we see that the path we have trod was one of walking in the Spirit and not fulfilling the lust of the flesh? Has the love of God been an influence in keeping us out of the pleasures of this world and instead doing righteousness, as He is righteous? We only one shot at this thing called life, and I believe it behooves us to do the best job we can to show we love Him too. As one said like it was his motto, (He died for me, for him I'll live). Knowing what He has done for us on the Cross, and what He is doing for us now, I believe it really is our reasonable service to live henceforth for Him.
