It's You I Live For Everyday

Everyday, it's You I'll live for
Everyday, I'll follow after You
Everyday, I'll walk with You my Lord
It's You I live for, everyday
It's You I live for, everyday
It's You I live for, everyday

 

Because He Lives

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives

 

Just Living

 

Friday morning during a time of prayer, praise and worship music was playing in the sanctuary The song, It's You I Live For Everyday played.  As I heard those words

I asked myself, "Is that what I am doing everyday? Am I living for Jesus or am I just living?" Another old song then came to my mind. Because He lives I Can Face Tomorrow. I knew that was very true.  If Jesus didn't live there would be no tomorrow for any of us really.  I thought of the difference in because and for, everyday and tomorrow.

For-function; preposition to indicate purpose

Because-fuction; conjunction, the fact that

For indicates purpose. Because means, or is usually used to replace the words, "the fact that." So, the line "It's you I live for everyday," could be said,  "It's you that gives me a purpose to live everyday." The line,"Because He lives I can face tomorrow," could be, "The fact that He lives allows me to face tomorrow."

 

Main Entry: ev·ery·day   : encountered or used routinely or typically

Main Entry: to·mor·row  : on the day after today

According to Webster everyday means used routinely. Tomorrow simply means the day after today. So the great  earth shaking revelation I got from these two songs is this.We should live for Jesus routinely because He is the indicated purpose for our living. If it weren't for Him we wouldn't be living everyday.The fact that He does live gives us a reason to face the day after today and the next and the next.

 

No matter what comes our way today, we know He is alive this day and He will be alive tomorrow as well. Jesus is alive, is the one fact, the one very sure thing, you can count on everyday that you live and you should live for Him all of your days no matter what those days hold in store for you.
