Living His Life


March 11, 2020: SOAP #3751:   Deuteronomy 16-18; Psalm 38; Galatians 2

Scripture:  Galatians (NIV) 2:19 For through the law Idied to the law so that I might live for God. 20 I have been crucified withChrist and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in thebody, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Observation:  Itis impossible to live the crucified life, because it is dead. I died to the oldway of living, having been cut off from the former source of life. If I amliving the “crucified” life, it is proof that I am not completelydead.

Christ now lives in me. He was crucified but He is not living the“crucified” life.  He is livingthe tested life and that is the life that He now lives in me.  He is living the victorious life and that isthe life that He now lives in me.  He isliving the resurrected life and that is the life that He now lives in me! 

Application:   Oh, tograsp the fullness of this revelation.  Mylife in Christ is post-resurrection life. It is a life that has already overcome every temptation I will encountertoday.    

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, what a peace to know you arealive in me! "what a joy to know you are working through me. "what a privilege ismine!  Amen
