“For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:19-20.
To be able to live by faith in God we need to understand where we are coming from. Once we were all held prisoners by sin. Then God, in his love and mercy, sent Jesus into the world to set us free from the captivity of sin.
This is where the word of God for today is highlighting. Jesus was crucified because of our sin. Hence to live a new life free from sin, we are to consider ourselves crucified with Christ by faith. It then means that Christ is living his life in our physical bodies. Again, it is by faith to accept, and to believe that our present lives is being controlled and being led by Christ Jesus who died for our sin.
All we need to accept today is that God loves us, and that he has given himself for us through his Son, Jesus Christ. By faith, dear friend, let us receive Christ who enables us to live victorious life!
Remain blessed as we continue…
