“O love the LORD, all ye his saints” (Psalms 31:23; 1 John 4:9-10,16,19). Live for God (1 Sam. 1:27-28; Rom. 12:1-2). Do not live for yourself (Rom. 14:7-8). Live on Christ (John 4:10; 6:35-58; 7:37-38). Live for Christ (Gal. 2:20). Live for His glory. Serve Christ by serving His people (1 Thess. 2:8,19-20). “In lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves” (Php. 2:3). Make it your life’s work to meet the needs and help the faith of others. Make it your life’s goal to seek and find and bring Christ’s sheep to Him and feed them also through the ministry of the Gospel (John 21:15-17; 1 Pet. 5:1-7). Consider all that you do to be nothing in coming to God and your acceptance with Him (Luke 18:13; 1 Cor. 4:7; 15:9-10; Eph. 3:8; 1 Tim. 1:15). Confess your sins and your sin to God and come to Him looking only to the blood and righteousness of Christ (1 John 1:7-9; Heb. 10:14-23). Entrust the keeping of yourself and your eternal soul to your all good and gracious and faithful Savior, who lived and died and rose and reigns and intercedes for His people (Rom. 5:1-11; 8:28-39).
