What do You Live For?
For me to live is Christ and to die is gain
What do you live for? I mean, what is it that drives you in your life? Many people live for their families, some for their jobs. Many live for technology and science, or philosophy, and some just live for that next high on drugs or alcohol.
But we are different, worship leaders! We must not give ourselves to technology, philosophy or addictions, for we have a higher calling. Even our jobs or families fade away next the incredible privilege of serving Jesus.
What we are prepared to die for, we must also be prepared to live for everyday. When we worship God, truly worship Him deeply either on stage or alone with Him, we are opening a window to the future when we shall be worshiping Him for ever and ever. All the pains and troubles of this world will fade away as we worship. All the knowledge and wisdom of this world shall dry up and be blown away by the power of His majesty and splendour!
So what do you live for? In eternity to come, will it be of value or will it fade away to nothing? What are you building into your life, is it wood, hay and stubble or gold, silver and costly stones? Whom do you really worship with your life and your talents?
As you worship God today, think about what you really live for, and make sure it is eternal. Eternity will be spend doing exactly what you have the privilege of doing right now, only on steroids! It will be just like the best worship time you have ever had, only bigger, brighter and better,
Worship is a window through which you can discover what you are living for.
