"I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death."
(Kara, who was the author of the March edition of Anchor Devotional, took that journey and went to be with Jesus on March 22, 2015.)
There is nothing atoning in our own life or death – only in the life and death of Jesus. But that which we do in Him brings Him glory and pleasure, and helps others to see His beauty. We can give those we touch the gift of seeing Him.
What is your story? Ask Jesus to provide sufficient courage to use your gifts to exalt him - by life or death.
