This verse is commonly used in cases of a person literally dying to save another. And rightfully so. But in the context, Jesus is actually telling us we should lay down our lives as living sacrifices for those around us.
Imagine how different your workplace would be if people were more willing to live a life of sacrifice for others. I know it may seem impossible, but it’s not. It starts with you!
This life is not about us, it’s about those we have the chance to impact with love.
Choose to be the light in what can be a dark place. Sacrifice for others.
Colossians 3:23 tells us “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” Christ died for you, will you live for Him? Be the living sacrifice.
