What to Live For On Earth To Enjoy A Most Fulfilled Life


Hi, Jesus loves you

What are you living for? What is it in your life that when it ends your life too ends? Many people lived for different reasons that made lives miserable for them and even cut short the lives of some of them.  But there is what to live for to enjoy a fulfilled life. You can enjoy a fruitful and long life when you live for the right reason.

As I was taking a walk in the morning, I for the first time took note of a bill board. It had written on it, “We live for superstars” and it had the pictures of three sport stars on it too. I wondered how long they would live for them. What if they fall out with the public or die early? What would they now live for?

Unfortunately people choose the wrong thing to live for. Some live for their children, careers, reputation, money, people, etc.  And if something unpleasant happens, they become devastated. Some die not too long after the incidence because they can’t cope with the loss or shame.

Is there really what to live for to enjoy life on earth to the full? Yes. It has to be durable and able to outlive you. The reason should be such that if anything goes wrong, your joy will still be intact. You should be able to share it with others. It should make you desire long life.

I know you may be wondering what can fit all these and many more. Philippians 1:21 gives us the answer. It says, “For me to live is Christ…” Jesus Christ is what to live for to enjoy a most fulfilled life on earth. When you have Jesus, you have everything: joy, peace, long life, prosperity, etc.  Having Jesus does not reduce you, instead it increases you.

When you live for Jesus, He will never abandon you in times of trouble. He said He will never leave nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). His whole aim is to give you life more abundantly (John 10:10) and that your joy may be full (John 16:24)

Living for Christ is to live for success and victory. No one who lives for Christ goes unnoticed. As you obey God and walk in line with His word, God lifts you and blesses you. This reminds me of the ass that Jesus rode on during the triumphant entry into Jerusalem. People put their garments on the way for Jesus to ride on but it was actually the ass that did ride on them (Matthew 21:7-8)

It is only when you live for Jesus that you have a fulfilled life because you will be doing exactly what you are made to do. The Almighty God dwells in you and empowers you to live for Jesus. What you can’t do, He supplies the strength and wisdom to carry it out.

Jesus Christ is really what to live for on earth. He not only enables you to enjoy long life on earth but also empowers you to enjoy life after death.  You get to enjoy abundant life on earth and also eternal life in heaven.

What are you living for? Is it really worth living for?

    Haa!!!!!! does this mean if i obey him and do his work i will be a donkey that Jesus is riding? When Jesus rode a donkey even what was never done in the history of the world was done. A donkey enjoyed walking on a mat that was prepared by people. People were doing it for Jesus, but because he was on top of a donkey, the donkey received the honour indirectly. THATS WHY THE BIBLE SAY YOU SHALL BE FAVORED BY GOD AND MAN. Hallelluya. God use me! help me with the how and when to start wisdom!! Thanks Mom. You are such a great blessing into my life. Luv always.

    Living God,
    you have lit the day with the sun’s light
    and the midnight with shining stars.
    Lighten our hearts with the bright beams
    of the Sun of Righteousness
    risen with healing in his wings,
    Jesus Christ our Lord.
    And so preserve us in the doing of your will,
    that at the last we may shine
    as the stars for ever;
    through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen…..very wonderful write-up
