Re:Verse passage–2 Corinthians 5:11-21, 6:1-2 (day five) There may be many answers to the question, but certainly one is that Christ died “so that those who live would no longer live for themselves but for him.” (vs 14, today’s reading) Unselfish service is the very definition of love. The man who LOVES his wife must consider her needs above his own. The person who LOVES Christ must do the same. BIG PROBLEM for those of us who are trapped in selfishness! Sometimes (often? always?) even our service to Christ is motivated by a concern for our own welfare or safety. If the reason that Christ willingly went to the cross was for me to be reborn into an unselfish life, shouldn’t I be more serious and honest about the level of love in my heart and life? Trusting the infinite Holy Spirit to supply every need, I will begin today! Trusting Him to accept even my failings, I will love Him! It is why Christ died.
