I am crucified with Christ.

take-me-to-the-cross-1Galatians 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 morning I am reminded that the greatest way to live the Christian life is to live crucified with Christ. He not only brought my spirit to life, but He can be my very life itself (Christ liveth in me). When I do this, it’s “not I” – not my flesh, or my old man, or my natural sinful self, “but Christ” – His Spirit, and His leading, and His living, living in and through me. This is how I want to live!

We are reminded, however, that this is a daily process. Paul also said in 1 Cor 15:31, “I die daily.” Might we reckon ourselves dead, die daily, and allow Christ to live through us, even today.
