Passion for Praise: 'To Honor the Lord'

Monday, July 13, 2020

For we don't live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it's to honor the Lord. And if we die, it's to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose — to be the Lord of both the living and the dead.
— Romans 14:7-9
