Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a wonderful devotional today
that I highly recommend to you. He has given
me permission to copy his e-mails, and I'm sure
he would be happy if you would share this with
people you know as well.

In his November 18, 2005 devotional, Bill Keller
asked his readers to consider if they would die
for their faith. This devotional is a follow
on to that devotional.


(Romans 12:1, Philippians 1:21, Galatians 2:20)

If you will die for Jesus.....will you LIVE for
Jesus? Yesterday, I proposed a hypothetical
situation that less than 1 percent of Believers
will ever have to face in this life. That is
having to literally give your life for your faith
in Christ. My heart was encourage by thousands of
people who responded and said that they would
gladly die for Christ.

Knowing those who get this Devotional, I am not
surprised. This tends to be a spiritually mature
group of people, some are pastors, some are in
full-time service to the Lord as missionaries,
some are part of Christian organizations, but the
overwhelming majority who get this Devotional
each day are just faithful Believers who live their
lives daily for the Lord. Today, the deeper
question to you is this. If you are willing to DIE
for your faith, are you willing to LIVE for your

You see, THAT is the question that each one who
claims to know Christ as their Savior must answer
every morning. It is actually much easier to die
for Him, then it is to LIVE for Him. But that is
what the Bible calls for us to do when Paul says in
1 Corinthians 15:31 when he said "I die every day"
and in his letter to the church at Galatia when he
says in Galatians 2:20 that "...I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me." Every one of us who knows
Christ as our Savior, must die to self each day so
that the Lord can live through us.

I love you and care about you SO MUCH!!!!! The
entire point of this Devotional today is boiled
down to one simple question. If you will die for
Him, will you LIVE for Him? To answer yes means
that you will open your heart to the Lord, you will
surrender your life to Him today, and you will "die
to self" each day so that Christ can live through you.

The Bible tells us that when we accept Christ into
our hearts it is no longer our life any longer.
Our life now belongs to Him. I pray that you will
take some time today to spend that time alone with
the Lord. Use that time to re-commit your life to
Him. Tell God that your life is His. No matter
what He asks you to do, no matter where He asks you
to go, YOUR life belongs to God!

My friend, today is the day that I am bringing you
face to face with the only real question that
matters in your Christian journey. In reality,
there is only one thing that God has ever asked of
you and that is for you to give Him your life,
wholly and unconditionally surrendered to Him.
Very few will ever be asked to die for your faith
in Jesus. However, EVERYONE who professes their
faith in the Lord is asked to LIVE for Him. My
question for you today is simple. If you claim that
you will die for Jesus, will YOU live for Jesus?

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
