Today’s reading: Galatians 2:20
It is no longer I who live
We read in Galatians 2:20:
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
When we get baptized, have hands laid upon us, and receive the Holy Spirit, we must realize that we are not of our own. Our life is not ours anymore. It is God’s.
Just like Paul, we must remember that we all have been crucified with Christ. Because of sin, the death penalty hung on our necks. We should be the one who has died, but Yahshua died for us on our behalf.
Since we have been crucified with Christ, we should have already been dead by now. However, because of Christ’s sacrifice, we are alive.
If we are already dead, who are we to complain? If we don’t own our life anymore, why should we still choose to do our will instead of God’s will? If we live by faith in Yahshua, why do we still doubt God?
As you can see, if we realize that we don’t own our lives anymore, we should have the right priorities in life. It is not about us anymore, but it is about God. It is not about what we want, it’s about what God wants. It is not about our goals and dreams, but what God has planned for us.
That’s what it means for Christ to live in us. It is not us who direct our path anymore, but we follow in the footsteps of Yahshua.
