For us missionaries here in Haiti, this verse has a great meaning, because there are so many gangs in Haiti… and every day we hear of something worse than the day before. But “Whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” Rom. 14:8
“For we are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s…” I Cor. 6:20
It gives us all great comfort knowing that “we belong to the Lord…” He paid for us. We belong to Him. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. Everyone who is reading this now, belongs to the Lord. He hides us in “His secret place,” and takes care of us each day. We shall not fear!
