“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.” Galatians 2:20

The Apostle Paul and every believer were crucified with Christ in order to die to sin, the law, and this evil age. While believers live on physically, Christ also lives within them spiritually. Christ’s resurrection power through the Spirit is worked out through the Christian who chooses to live by faith in the Son of God.

“In the body” just means in this earthly life. Luther once said, “By [faith] you are so cemented to Christ that He and you are as one person”.

Blessings on your day…
