S – scripture
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20 NIV)
Paul goes to Galtia and meets with prominent church leaders to see if he is on mark preaching to the Gentiles. He finds out he’s right on track and continues to preach to the Gentiles.
The gospel is simply lived out daily as we allow Christ to live in us and thru us. Jesus did not die to simply forgive sin and pay the penalty for sin…he died so we could live, dead to ourselves and alive to Christ. The life we live is a life of faith in Jesus!
A – application.
What needs to die in me that is me so that the Jesus in me can live and ultimately empower me to LIVE! Real life is when Jesus is alive in us and nothing holds him back.
Lord help me to recognize what parts in me are alive that are not allowing you to live in me. I want to live the crucified life, so that my life is truly alive in you!
