Identity in Christ

If I No Longer Live. . .
If I no longer live…
Then why am I working so hard to sustain and improve my life?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I devote myself to that which is temporal and neglect that which is spiritual?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I chase after that which is perishing?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I fret so much about my castle?
If I no longer live…
Then why is it, no matter how much money I have, I don’t have enough to give to the needy or the Lord?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I invest so much time in my job and so little in my children?
If I no longer live…
Then why am I so intent on leaving in this world a legacy?
If I no longer live…
Then why are my children picking up my worldly values?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I invest so much time into pursuing fun and self-gratification?
If I no longer live…
Then why am I so proud of my accomplishments?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I get so angry with those who cross me or thwart my plans?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I stress out over “things” and why am I so intolerant toward those who mess with my stuff?
If I no longer live…
Then why are my feelings, wishes, and wants so consuming?
If I no longer live…
Then why do I live so much for myself and serve others so little?
If I no longer live…
Then why don’t I love others?
