The Dead End of Selfishness #devo

“And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:15

One of the reasons Jesus gave his life, was to rescue us from the dead end of living for ourselves. We’re made and saved for so much more than self-love. And it’s in trusting in and living for Christ and for others that we discover more peace and power than selfishness and looking within can offer. Lord, save us from the dead end of selfishness.
