CHRIST IN YOU

Read: Galatians 2

Key Verse: “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.” - Galatians 2:20

As if saving your soul for eternity is not enough, Jesus also resides within you. He wants to be close with you and will never leave you. People try to find security in money, jobs, drugs, clothes, fitness, accomplishments, entertainment, and popularity. It is not there. The answer to the void in our lives is Jesus Himself. The only way to live the Christian life is to be full of Christ. He modeled it and He transforms us to be like Him. In what ways are you becoming more like Jesus?

Being crucified is painful, but it is in surrender that we find our meaning and joy. If you are only living for yourself, your vision and purpose are far too small. Because He gave everything to you, it is time to offer yourself to the Lord. What part are you trying to hold back? Why? Christ’s power, peace, and love will increase in your life the more you yield to Him. Trust Him because He will never fail you and will reassure you with His intimate presence.
