OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Bible Verse, Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

Today’s verse

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:28 NLT

Today’s reading
2 Corinthians 6

2 Corinthians 6:1-2 NLT
[1] As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. [2] For God says, "At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you." Indeed, the "right time" is now. Today is the day of salvation.

Today’s devotion
A Devotion for Holy Week: Living for Christ
Life for Leaders Daily Devotion

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 NLT
[14] Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. [15] He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

What are you living for? Really. What are you living for? Success? Status? Security? Significance?

In 2 Corinthians 5:14, the Apostle Paul answers this question, but in a slightly different form. Not “what are you living for?” but “whom are you living for?”

In 2 Corinthians 5:15 we read, “And [Christ] died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”

Today’s worship song

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus, I love You, I’m sorry, forgive me, thank You. Thank you for the life you give us through Christ. Thank you for the opportunity to live in a new way, not for ourselves, but for Christ. Help us to live for him, not in order to earn anything, but in response to his loving sacrifice. May we offer our lives freely and fully, with joy and gratitude. Amen.

Today’s prayer from today’s devotion.
