“My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20 NLT
When I read this passage, I picture someone who is completely and utterly sold out to Jesus Christ. Paul is saying that his old self no longer exists...His old self is dead. It is Christ who exists and lives in him.
What about you?
Are you sold out to Jesus?
Can you say what Paul is saying?
Are you living in this earthly body trusting all things in your life to the Son of God?
“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:3-6 NLT
Trust and obey for there is no other way...
