The Christ-Life

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ:  nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:  and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

 

This is one of the most power pieces of Scripture in the Bible.  The victories we experience in life our products of our obedience to the principles found in this verse.  This verse teaches us the source of a Christian living out the Life of Christ.  We see that there is an importance in being dependent up on the Savior. The verse teaches us of how we are identified with Christ.  We are crucified with Him, but live by Him.  We identify with His death, but at the same time we can also identify with His resurrection.  The ability to experience victory over sin is not controlling situations yourself, but it is learning to allow Christ to live out His purpose through you.  We also see that we are indwelt by Christ.  Christ lives in us!  Christ also lives through us!  The Christ-life is essentially a complete life of faith.  Most of the time we refuse to allow Christ to live through us.  We compartmentalize Him and refuse to die to our self.  We must understand that in order to completely surrender to Christ we must operate on the basis of faith.

 

Today’s Challenge:  Remember that God can do more with you on accident that you can do with you on purpose.  Let Him live through you!
