Lord of Our Living
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep,
we should live together with him.
1 Thessalonians 5:10
I have studied the New Testament enough to know that our Lord Jesus Christ never made the sharp distinctions between “secular” and “sacred” that we do!
I think it is wrong to place our physical necessities on one side, and put praying and singing and giving and Bible reading and testifying on the other.
When we are living for the Lord and living to please and honor Him, eating our breakfast can be just as spiritual as having our family prayers. There is no reason for a committed Christian to apologize: “Lord, I am awfully sorry but you know I have to eat now. I will be with you again just as soon as I am through.”
Well, we have a better way than that in our living for God, and we see as we consider His feeding of the 5,000 the meaning of His lordship. Jesus Christ is Lord—Lord of our bread and Lord of our eating and Lord of our sleeping and Lord of our working!
Brethren, our Lord is with us, sanctifying everything we do, provided it is honest and good.
Lord, today I want to be especially aware that You are the Lord of whatever I am doing. Thank You for Your all-encompassing presence in my life.
