“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” Galatians 2:20, NKJV.
The Apostle Paul said I am crucified with Christ. This is the ultimate statement to say you don’t live anymore, yet your life is now Christ to lead. All of his sin, the sinful nature, and its’ desires for doing what doesn’t please God have been nailed to the cross. Jesus lives in him and a new man has risen.
That old man may call your name, but refuse to be the man you use to be. A new man has truly risen. The devil may remind you of what you’ve done, even something recent, but remind him of his defeat. You have been crucified with Christ and live by the faith you have in him. He removed the power of sin and its’ dominance over you, and the life God has planned for you is yours to experience today. The freedom, joy, peace, strength, and victory over what’s before you are yours to experience today. This is what He paid for.
With no condemnation, rejoice in your day. Live in Him and let Christ live through you.
Prayer: Father, I thank You! I make the ultimate statement that I am crucified with Christ. I don’t live, but Christ lives me. That old man is gone. Your agenda is my agenda. Your way to handle situations is my way. My life is hid in Christ and what He has done for me. Help me to live free and experience the blessed life You have planned for me today. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
