IC365 Day 36: Christ Lives

Home/Writing Projects/IC365/IC365 Day 36: Christ Lives

“I have been crucified with Christ; and 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 up for me.” – Galatians 2:20

We tend to focus on our benefit (God loved me…), but what does God gain from loving and giving Himself up for us? If we are in Christ, then we have been crucified with Him. This means it is no longer you nor I who live, but Christ lives in us. Therefore, the life that we are living in the flesh is a life lived by faith in Christ. He loved us and gave Himself up for us, so that He might live in and through us. What does He gain? A people crucified with Him (and resurrected with Him), so He now lives.
