Is Life Worth Living?

Life is worth living,
If lived to Him,
Who paid my penalty.
All is worth giving,
If given for Him
Who gave Himself for me.

Life's not worth living
If lived for self.
'Tis hollow mockery.
'Tis not worth living,
'Tis wasted time,
And ends in misery.

Life is worth living
If but for this:
To praise Him for His grace,
And then the giving
Of His blest Word,
That some may see, His face.

There's no real living
Apart from Him
Who gave Himself for us.
The joy of giving
Is known to those
Who bow at Jesus' cross.

~H. McD.~


A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

1John 5:11-12
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.He that hath the Son hath life;
and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

The Lord Jesus is our life. When He shall appear, we shall be like
Him for we shall see Him as He is. Oh that we would look to Him
and not upon our circumstances. Our life is worth living because
He gives us a new life in Him. When we cast all of our care upon
Him, we see that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. May we
ever give praise to Him for all He has done for us! The Lord
deserves all the praise -- both now and forever! Hallelujah!

The Lord Jesus said in John 10:10:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly.

1John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in
him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God,
and eternal life.

Psalm 121:2
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Psalm 63:3
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.
