“I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
“Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Lord Jesus, I am yours. Thank you for loving me and dying for me. Thank you that you now live in me. My life is yours. I pray that I will live my life by faith, adherence, reliance, and complete trust in you. I pray that my heart will continue to desire more of you day after day. Jesus, I love you!
