Crucified with Christ

SCRIPTURE

v.20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

OBSERVATION

Can it be a good thing to die? Paul tells us that our “old self” has died with Christ.  This means our failures, our mistakes, our condemnation, have all gone!  Jesus rose again, and so have we, set free to live a new life with Christ in us.  He fills us with the Holy Spirit and gives us new purpose and direction.

APPLICATION

Let us let go of our “old self” and embrace the future with confidence in Jesus.

PRAYER

Thank you Jesus for my new life in you. I commit my future into your hands and trust you to guide me each day by faith. Amen.
