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.
It’s not about me and what I want to do. It’s all about Christ! My identity is not found in myself, it’s rooted in Christ because I am now a transformed and redeemed child of God. I have to remember that continually. This is the process of “dying to self”. This is the process of sanctification..
I crucify all my carnal and selfish desires and put them behind me and then I go on to live for Christ.
The life which I now live right here on this planet, at this very moment in the flesh, I live through faith in Jesus Christ who bled and died to save me! What a glorious redemption we have in Christ! Let us throw away the sin that so easily besets us and let us walk with Christ in newness of life. Remember: “It’s not about me. It’s all about Him!
When tempted by our carnality and the sinfulness of our heart, let us say “It is not I but Christ who lives in me!”
All glory to Him!
