Prepare to Die By Living for Christ

by Greg Laurie on Jan 6, 2023

In 2011, an inventor presented his idea for a unique alarm clock on the television show “Shark Tank.” The clock, called Wake n’ Bacon, was designed to start cooking bacon just before the alarm went off so that its owner could wake up to the aroma of sizzling bacon.

What wakes you up in the morning? What do you live for? Some people might say, “Well, I just live to live. I take it one day at a time.” To them, life is mere existence. They have no philosophy to speak of, no objective they live for. They just live for the moment. They may even say, “Eat, drink, and be merry.” But that’s a bad philosophy for life.

Jesus told the story of a man who was very successful financially. He had so many possessions that he didn’t have enough room to contain them, so he built buildings to house his stuff. In fact, he said to himself, “You have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!” (Luke 12:19 NLT)
