As if

How do you live your life? Here’s some great guidance from Martin Luther on how we should live our lives.

“Preach [and live] as if Jesus was crucified yesterday, rose from the dead today, and is returning tomorrow.”

Martin Luther

Great words of advice, but what do they actually mean for you and me?

Well first and foremost we must give our lives to God, and believe that He has a plan for our lives. By believing in God and His love for us, we believe in Christ’s crucification, and His resurrection, and that He will return to earth to live amongst us one day. Are you ready for Jesus’ return?

Am I living as if I’m ready for Jesus’ return tomorrow? If I’m honest, I find myself focusing on the here and now, and what God’s plan is for me today, and can almost forget that Jesus could return here tomorrow. Maybe I need to change my focus.

How about you, are you living as if you believe in Christ’s resurrection and that He may return tomorrow?
