Romans 14:8 (Amplified Bible)

If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or we die, we belong to the Lord.

Romans 14:8 (New King James Version)

For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.

A. If we live, we live for the LORD. If we die, we die for the LORD.

"If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord."

1 Thessalonians 5:10 (Amplified Bible)

Who died for us so that whether we are still alive or are dead [at Christ’s appearing], we might live together with Him and share His life.

Philippians 2:30 (Amplified Bible)

For it was through working for Christ that he came so near death, risking his [very] life to complete the deficiencies in your service to me [which distance prevented you yourselves from rendering].

Philippians 2:17 (Amplified Bible)

Even if [my lifeblood] must be poured out as a libation on the sacrificial offering of your faith [to God], still I am glad [to do it] and congratulate you all on [your share in] it.

This is a miserable world that we're living in, people are afraid to live and they are also afraid to die. But while we enjoy the LORD JESUS in our life, that makes our life enjoyable, our focus is on the LORD JESUS, the Savior of our souls in our lives not on life itself.

Colossians 1:27 (Amplified Bible)

To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.

Hebrews 2:15 (Amplified Bible)

And also that He might deliver and completely set free all those who through the [haunting] fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives.

As born again CHRISTian believers, we must not be afraid of living and afraid of dying.

B. We belong to the LORD, whether we live or die.

"So then, whether we live or we die, we belong to the Lord."

Acts 21:13 (Amplified Bible)

Then Paul replied, What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart like this? For I hold myself in readiness not only to be arrested and bound and imprisoned at Jerusalem, but also [even] to die for the name of the Lord Jesus.
