You’ve seen the “How’s my driving?” decal stickers on the backs of delivery vehicles and big rigs. These decal stickers are part of a safety & driver monitoring program and the goal of this program is, simply, to reduce vehicle crashes. What if we were required to wear these decal stickers on our bodies? In lieu of ‘How is my driving’ it would state ‘How am I living’ and ‘Who are you living for’. The real question is, are we truly living for Jesus? The Westminster Shorter Catechism says, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” As His children we are created and called to pursue God with our entire being – heart, soul, mind, and strength. We abide in Christ (John 15:4, 8) and therefore, act like Him by loving others. In doing that, we bring glory to His name and also enjoy the relationship for which we were originally created.
In reality, living for Christ will prevent unnecessary life crashes and will help us to live a fulfilling life that will bless others and glorify the Him. To live is Christ and to die is gain!
