I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, March 1, 2015 Sunday Tidbit

I no longer live“For through the law I died to the law, that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.”

Galatians 2: 19-20

There is a song we sing at Church during the Easter season that has this line: “For I no longer live but Christ lives in me!” Each time I hear it or sing it I get goosebumps. I feel that this is so true, in my most clear moments of the presence of God in my life, I feel this completely. That Christ is the motion, inertia, and energy of my life. I want to live out his call in my life with the purpose that God created me for.

As soon as you allow this to occur, to accept the invitation, and open your life to Christ, you no longer live for yourself but for Christ. It is in that moment that you will begin to live the life you were made to live. Can you allow yourself to take this leap, God will catch you and you will live like you have never lived before. “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me!”
