How Then Should We Live?

On Sunday, I talked about how Solomon’s Temple was built with a singular purpose, and when it was finished “the glory of the LORD” filled the Temple signifying that God found it a suitable and satisfactory place to dwell.

In the New Testament we find that through Christ we are “temples” that God has chosen to dwell in. And the more that we can be surrendered to God and His will for our lives, the more “at home” God is in us.

What if we lived each day with the singular purpose of being fully surrendered to God? Wouldn’t it be easier to live that way if we knew today was our last day? What if we just acted like it was our last day?

Discuss these questions as a family:

1) What does it mean to be surrendered to Christ?

2) What is one practical way that I can be more surrendered to Christ this week?

3) How can we help each other to live each day as if it could be our last… to make the most of each day and to live for Christ each day?
