death is gain

Does my life demonstrate that I am ready and willing to die for the sake of Jesus?

A true Christian must be willing to say, "I will not renounce Christ, even if it costs my life." But as soon as we say that, it makes a whole lot of things in our lives look ridiculous. I will die for you, but I can't find time to sit and read your teaching each day. I will die for you, but prayer doesn't seem real. I will die for you, but I can't talk to Jim about you at work. I will die for you, but I can't support your cause with more than 10% of my income. One of the best ways to bring wonderful Christ-honoring changes into your life is to measure your way of life by your willingness to die for Jesus.
John Piper
May I not be ashamed of the gospel! May I not forget the gospel! May Jesus be everything! May I not only be able to say, "I will not renounce Christ, even if it costs my life," but also "To live is Christ; to die is gain!"

Amen.
