We all, at one point or another, have heard the saying "YOLO" (you only live once). This is a true statement, but it is coming from a group that is morally corrupt, in their worldview. They use this to justify their sin. They use it as a way to say that living a right and moral (God-honoring) life is not important because you YOLO. Now with so many of our Christian ideas getting used by the non-Christian left or the left, in general. I think that we need to, as a whole, start to use YOLO for the good of the Great Commission & the Gospel. Why is it that we have not used this term to bring the Gospel to people? Why have we not told them, yes, you only live one time so why are you living like you are going to keep living? We sit by and look at all the people who live under the theology of YOLO and we look at them like they are crazy! Yet we as the body of Christ, forget that we live one time too. We forget that during that time we must make it a point, a must, to bring the Gospel to others. We must remember that, in fact, we need to give the glory to God because our life is in His hands. Our purpose is not to live like YOLO, but to honor God Himself. To live as the acronym, YOLO states would be willing to live for our wants and not His glory.
This article I'm writing is a call for us to pick up our cross and live once for the glory and honor of our Lord who went to the cross for our sins! This is not a call for us to live as the left would want us to live. I am one who growing up in the age of YOLO before it was YOLO and I can tell you that it is something. That from a very early age has been grounded into our heads and made to look as if we need to do many things before we die. This is not true it is not even close to what we are called to do, so I ask what is the chief end of man? The Westminster answers that one for you, but I want you to take the time and think about what your chief end or what your chief goals in life are what are you meant to do? Let's stop letting the left take over something we should be using for the glory of God.
