What are you willing to die for?

Today during AP Literature class we were asked the following question: What, if anything, are you willing to die for?

This was my answer:

Am I willing to die for something I believe in? Am I willing to die for my belief in Jesus Christ? I believe that Jesus Christ died for me 2,000 years ago on a cross out of LOVE. I wasn’t even born yet. Nor were my parents, nor my grandparents, nor my great grandparents, nor my great-great-great-great grandparents, for that matter. And yet He died for them, too, simply out of love. He has shown grace and mercy towards me and that is something I cannot repay. And even though as a Christian I am facing and will face trials and tribulations due to my choice to believe in Jesus and all that He stands for, I still choose to live for Christ. And if it came to the point that I would have to die for believing in Him, I would gladly accept it. I am not afraid of dying. To live is Christ, to die is gain. Dying for Christ means meeting Him face to face and listening to Him say “well done”.

Am I willing to die for Jesus?
Heck yes.

I choose Jesus.
