Under New Management

The story is told of a man who after being converted to Christ put on a shirt that said “Under New Management.” When asked about it, he explained how he was now under Christ and not himself. Oh that more Christians would respect this relationship to the Lord!

As a Christian, ones purpose of life is to be different from those of the world. He is no longer living for himself but for the One who died for his sins. Life is no longer about what “I” want to do, but what would God have me to do?.

Under new management, one will say with Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal. 2:20).

What is your purpose in life? What goals have you set for yourself? Where and how are you spending your time? “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Col. 3:1-2).

Friend, put the Lord first. Get under His management today
