"He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again (2 Cor 5.15)."

Why is it that the people aren't experiencing life to it's fullest? Because we are living for ourselves instead of for Him who died for us and rose again. Remember the old song, "Satisfaction"? The main lyric goes, "I can't get no satisfaction."

The pleasures of this world can't satisfy our greatest need, which is to be loved. But when we do God's will He shows His love towards us in greater ways, satisfying our need. His blessing makes us rich and he adds no sorrow with it (Prov 10.22 and Jn 15.21&23). God's will is that all men be saved (See SAVED on and "It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching (the gospel) to save them that believe (1 Cor 1.21)." This is why Christ commands us to preach the gospel to every creature and teach them that believe to preach it (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20).

The gospel according to the scriptures is - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4)." It can easily be preached by first asking another if they have heard the good news. By preaching the gospel we give others the chance to believe on Christ and be saved ( Jn 3.37 & 6.47 and Acts 16.31). This is why Christ went to the cross for.

To experience life to it's fullest as Christ intends for us, we must live for him (Jn 10.10 & 2 Cor 5.15). Make preaching the gospel and teaching them that believe to preach it the number one priority in your life and you will have the blessing of God (Rom 8.28 & Prov 10.22 and Lk 9.24). Live for Christ.
