Because of Calvary,
Mark 8:35 (ESV)
For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.
“I daresay that I am speaking to a large number of people who do not know what they are living for. You have come into the world, and here you are; and, in due time, you will go out of it; but that is all that can be said of you. You are doing nothing; you have no noble end in view, no glorious purpose to accomplish, no sublime aspiration to realize. Then take it for granted that, if all you sow is the wind; you will reap nothing but wind; only it will come to you in a fiercer form, — as a whirlwind, for God will say to you, ‘I made thee for my glory; I sent thee into the world with a purpose; I entrusted thee with talents; I made thee a steward of my goods, and now thou art accused, unto me of having wasted my goods. Give an account of thy stewardship.’ What will you say then? Alas! in that day, the trifler, the idler, the mere butterfly in the garden of the world, will find things going hard indeed with him. God save you all from leading an aimless life!” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1899), p. 355]
