We have been crucified with Christ, the self-importance part of our lives, has been crucified too.
Galatians 2 verse 20: “And I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in The Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”.
We have been crucified with Christ, which means we have come to the cross, which is foolishness to the world, and gazed on the what Our Lord, Our Savor and Our Friend suffered for us there. Deeply moved, we turn aside from the kind of life we once lived and take our stand at Calvary.
We have been crucified with Christ and there comes a time when we must stop living for our own plans in life, for we will continually miss the mark, of His high calling, give up ownership of ourselves, and confess, “Your will be done in me”.
Psalm 91 verse 2: ‘ “I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God, in Whom I trust”.
It is not a matter of giving up anything, it is a matter, of allowing Our Creator God, of using and transforming our lives, in the purpose we were created for.
