"How to Live Again"
19 “For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God.
20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard?
3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?
4 Have you experienced[c] so much in vain—if it really was in vain?
5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
6 So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
The problem in churches is that there’s not enough dead people—people who no longer live for themselves, but are living because Christ lives in them.
Can you honestly tell God right now that you no longer live, and that, instead, Christ lives in you?
Jesus died so that I could die too.
Jesus gave up his life so I could give up my life too.
Faith is my fuel for living.
We have to go directly through Christ to become a better person, period.
Who taught you to think outside of Christ?
The power of the crucified Christ is the power to be dead and live again.
