The song says what am i living for,if not for you,referring to his girlfriend. BUT WHO ARE YOU TRULY LIVING FOR? For yourself, your spouse, your children.
+Those who live for self,and others need to examine their Salvation.
God doesn’t like ,nor does He want you put others before Him. “
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence”.(Colossians 1:13-18 NKJV).
“You shall have no other gods before or besides Me. You shall not make yourself any graven image [to worship it] or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; You shall not bow down yourself to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, [Isa. 42:8; 48:11.] But showing mercy and steadfast love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments. You shall not use or repeat the name of the Lord your God in vain [that is, lightly or frivolously, in false affirmations or profanely]; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain “.(Exodus 20:3-7 AMPC).
+Those who live for God demonstrate His Salvation.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVES IN ME…
For in Him (Christ Jesus) we LIVE, and MOVE, and HAVE our BEING…
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
+When we are living for God it is never about what we think, say, feel or do, but instead it’s all about the will of God and what pleases Him.
Luke 22:42 Jesus Said to the Father…
…not my will, but Thine, be done.
+So we say like Jesus not my will, but Your Will be done Lord Jesus.
SO I ASKED AGAIN,WHO ARE YOU LIVING FOR? Don’t put no one before God.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith”. (Romans 12:1-3 NKJV).
2 Thessalonians 1:6
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
Romans 12 19
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord.
1 Peter 2:21-23
21 For even to this were you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an EXAMPLE, that you should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judges righteously:
+Living for God requires full commitment to Him in all areas of our lives and in all things.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
