Living for Jesus Christ means that,

I love the LORD my God with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength. And, that I Love my neighbor as myself. (See Mark‬ ‭12:30-31‬)

I received His new life and I no longer live for myself. Instead, I live for Christ, who died for my sin and was raised for me. (See 2. Corinthians‬ ‭5:15‬)

I give my body to God because of all He has done for me. I let it be a living and holy sacrifice, the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him. (See Romans‬ ‭12:1‬)

I give up my own way, take up my cross daily, and follow Him. (See Luke‬ ‭9:23‬)

For I don’t live for myself, but I live to please the Lord. (See Romans‬ ‭14:7‬-8)

Even if I suffer for doing what is right, God will reward me for it. So I don’t worry or be afraid of being threatened. Instead, I worship Christ as Lord of my life. (See 1. Peter‬ ‭3:14-15‬)

I have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for Him. (See Philippians‬ ‭1:29‬)

I Humble myself before the Lord, and He will lift me up in honor. (See James‬ ‭4:10‬)
