My Life Is Not Mine

Not Mine 

There is a powerful freedom discovered when a person understands the rightful ownership God has of all things.  The follower of Christ then is able to release feelings of entitlement, envy, pride, and discontent as the grip is loosened on the things of this world.  When “This is mine” gives way to “I, and all I own, are His,” the Christian begins to truly enjoy the life of a steward and the things God has entrusted to us.  

November 1, 2020 – My Life Is Not Mine

So many of life’s decisions are driven by the script, “This is my life.”  When we realize the price Christ paid for us, and the claim God has on our very life, we begin making much healthier decisions for our future: what we do with our bodies, what careers we pursue, our family plans, etc.

Romans 14:8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Psalm 100:3  Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

About the speaker

David Langewisch

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.
