Crucified With Christ

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So the life I now live in the body, I live because of the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

We are to live in Christ. To do this we must participate with Him in all He did. We must be crucified along with Him. This doesn’t mean we must be physically nailed to a cross. Jesus did that once for all and the debt to sin and separation from God has been severed forever for all believers. We must be crucified to our own self-centered desires. We must now live for the glory of the Father as Christ showed us. Our own glory must die on the cross of confession, redemption and repentance. Our question is are we willing to crucify ourselves and live in, through and for our God?
