For What Am I Willing to Die?

The “Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves” theme song is the tune that keeps running through my head today; especially the part that says, “I’d die for you.” (“Everything I Do, I Do It For You” as performed by Bryan Adams)

Needless to say, it takes me to the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

But it also brings the question to mind, “For what would you die?”

Do you have anything in your life that you would gladly lay down your life for?

A love?

A loyalty?

A belief?

A cause?

If the answer is, “No,” then it may be time to reevaluate some things.

A person who has nothing to die for has nothing to live for.

“As it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.” (Philippians 1:20) ESV 

“For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” (Acts 21:13) ESV
