"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 people aren't experiencing life to the fullest? Because we are living for ourselves instead of for Him who died for us and rose again. Christ commands us to, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." and to teach them that believe to preach it (Mt 28.20).

The best way to live for Christ is by preaching the gospel - "For It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching (the gospel) to save them that believe (1 Cor 1.21b)." The gospel according to the scriptures - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (See 1 Cor 15.1-4)." is easily preached to another after asking them, "Did you hear the good news (Gospel means good news.).

Telling others the good news gives them the opportunity to believe on Christ and be saved (Jn 3.37 & 6.47 and Acts 16.31) (See SAVED on for a definition of 'saved'.) and allows us to live for Christ and have a fruitful life (Jn 15.16). We also experience life more abundantly (Jn 10.10) for, "Whoever confesses me before men, him will I confess before my Father which is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, him will I also deny before my Father in heaven (Mt 10.32-33)."

Having life more abundantly is conditional upon confessing to others that - "Christ died for our sins, and he was buried, and he rose again on the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4)." and teaching them that believe to preach it.

Let's live for him who died for us and rose again (2 Cor 5.15). Then we will have a fruitful, more abundant life.
