Living by faith…is not living by a set of rules!

Scripture

“I was put to death on the cross with Christ, and I do not live anymore—it is Christ who lives in me. I still live in my body, but I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself to save me.”‭‭Galatians‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭NCV‬‬


Observation

A life of faith is not a life that continually presses to abide by a set of rules. We need to be people that live by faith and in order it live we have to crucify our sinful nature! Our sinful flesh hung on the cross so that the life we now live is by faith.  Christ lives in us! 

Application

True living for me is living for Jesus. I have to crucify my flesh, crucify my desires…I am crucified, I do not live anymore. Real living is understanding that Jesus died so we can live, but he did so that h could live in us. 

Prayer
Lord help me to daily live by faith…and truly live for you! I do not life I anymore….
