Living Your Best Life………

We live our ‘best’ life when we surrender our life to Jesus! Paul reminded the Church at Colossi to be intentional in regards to living their new life in Christ. He encouraged the church to set their minds on things of Heaven and not earth because as born again believers their life was hidden with Christ in God (Col 3:2-3)! As it was for the new believers back then so it is with us today! Our newly resurrected life is not our own! Therefore, we should honor God not only with our bodies but also with our life (I Cor 6:20). Having said that, we should live our best life in view of God’s perspective. The world promotes and condones sexual immorality, greed, lust, revenge, anger, malice, slander, and hate. Of course, from man’s perspective these vices are considered worldly freedoms but in God’s eyes they are spiritual inhibitors that impedes our spiritual growth! Look at it this way; our old self was crucified with Christ and He lives in us. So we live our [‘best’ life] by trusting in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us (Gal 2:20).
