Crucified Life

Read: Galatians 2, Psalm 2

Galatians 2:20 says, “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.”

Pop psychology says that I must recreate or reinvent myself. It says that inside me, somewhere, is the ability to help myself overcome all my problems and become a better version of me. There's a pretty large portion of your local bookstore dedicated to that notion.

Thankfully, we are not a renovation project. Christ died so that we might be reborn. The beauty of the whole thing is that when we are made into this new creation, we don't get a renovated life, we get Jesus, the Holy God, living inside each one of us.

So what does it mean to live by faith in the Son of God? It means that if we want our marriage to be better, we turn to Jesus. If we want our kids to turn out right, we turn to Jesus. If we want our job situation to improve, we turn to Jesus. If we have a health problem, we turn to Jesus. If we have money problems, we turn to Jesus. If we don't know what to do, we turn to Jesus. If we have more questions than answers, we turn to Jesus. It means that the everyday life we live in this body, we live by putting our faith in the Son of God (not in self–improvement), who loved us and gave Himself for us. Every problem finds its solution in the power of Christ who lives in us.

Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.” I have access to a complete, full life because the God of the universe died for me and now lives in me.
Is it possible that we fail to understand the importance of Jesus?
