(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Deuteronomy 16-18 & Psalm 38 & Galatians 2)
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
What lessons are there for me in this Scripture?
This verse is described as, “Paul’s testimony.” It must be mine as well.
I was a sinner deserving eternal separation from God. I am still a sinner but I accept the fact that Christ died for my sins and in doing that He removed the punishment (eternal separation from Him) that I deserved.
I have given Him my life. I now live trusting Him. I now live surrendered to Him. I live as someone filled with His Holy Spirit. I belong to Him.
The life I live is not my own. Those in my midst must see this Godly intertwining that has happened.
I must closely monitor my life so that His Ways are my ways. I must closely study/memorize His Words so as to gain His Wisdom.
I will fail functioning independently.
