Christ Liveth In Me…

Galations 2:20 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.

The Apostle Paul declares this simple truth. Christ liveth in me…is the secret to a successful Christian life..  We try so hard in our human strength to live up to the Godly standards we set for ourselves and we fail. We are overcome by temptations, earthly emotions of various types, anger, jealousy etc. It only as we give ourselves over to Christ and let him live in us and through us that we succeed.

Paul knew the secret. He declared, I am crucified with Christ and yet I live.  Paul died to his own desires and let Christ have control.  Christ lived in him and through him.  It was only as Paul yielded to Christ that his ministry was successful.  It is the same for us.  We must let our earthly desires be replaced by the life of Jesus.  When we live in Him we find success!

Keep Looking Up!
