SUMC Spiritual Vitamins (7-21-2020) “Whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.” -Romans 14:8b
The art of Christian living is to let go of our ego and let Christ reign in our hearts. By dying to our old self, we are born anew as children of God. By surrendering our lives to God, we receive a new life in God. Whether we live or die, we are in the arms of a loving God.
Dear Lord, help us to realize that we came from You and we return to You. While we are on earth, help us to live our lives as You want us to live, loving God and loving one another, promoting justice and peace for all humanity. Amen.
