?I am crucified with Christ! At a tender age I became intrigue about God and His ways. As I continued to learn more and more about this amazing God through Sunday school and Bible quiz I decided I wanted to receive salvation and live for Him and Him alone. I became aware of what this meant and decided that I wanted to be crucified with Him. So that he could live in and through me.
?I however thought at first that holiness was something I needed to work up. I remember a time in my early high school years when I use to publicly act holy. I failed at this as in secret I was watching material that I knew displeased God.
? I later realized that I didn’t need to act holy because God made me holy. This transformed my thinking so much that pleasing God became natural. I realized that God himself was holiness in me living in the flesh. It became automatic to love the things of God
as my mind was renewed about what it takes to truly honour Him
I realised I needed to allow Him to shine through me at all times and in everything I do. Holiness was my lifestyle.
It is no longer live I that live but it is Christ that lives in me. It only through true surrender that Christ can truly live through our lives.
*Scripture in Focus*
?And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Galatians 5:24 KJV
?I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 KJV
*Respond & Reflect*
Have you surrendered all to Christ ? If yes how can you tell?
If not why not and when will you?
