Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
“ I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
- When you choose to live as a follower of Christ how do you now identify with Christ’s crucifixion?
- It is no longer about you, no longer about “your” life, instead it is about who lives in you! You live because of whom?
- When you make the choice to follow Christ you are called not to live by our own wisdom but instead to live how?
- As Christians we do not follow Christ just because he was wise, He was a prophet, or a great teacher – yes all those things are true. But we follow Christ because He chose to show His love for us in what way?
- Jesus sacrificed Himself because He loves us, because He wants us to be with Him for eternity (John 3:16). You can trust Him with your life, you can put your faith in Him. Is there something that you are not willing to trust Jesus with? Confess it now, lay your life at His feet, and ask Him to help you trust Him as you walk with Him in faith trusting Him for your salvation and your life.
The more we trust, the more we allow our life and our will to be directed by Christ, the more He can use us for His glory. Awesome! Christ lives in you! Is there anything more that we could possibly desire? Praying for you!
