“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)

As a follower of Jesus, he takes up residence within us. None of us have what it takes to live lives that fully please God, but Jesus does-and he lives in us. So often, we approach our relationship with Jesus like it’s an add-on to what we’re already doing. This verse says the exact opposite. In our baptism, we identify with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. We die to our old ways of thinking and living and leave them behind in a watery grave. Paul says we are crucified with Jesus and trade a self-led life for a Christ-led life. Is that your approach to faith and life? That you have died and now it’s all about Christ living in and through you? Spend some time this week reflecting on this verse and evaluating how you are approaching your faith and relationship with Jesus.
