“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Paul’s description of a life lived for God doesn’t sit easily with me. My life with Christ living in me has to look different, has to BE different, than a life lived without acceptance of Christ. Is my life lived for Christ, with Christ always in my head and my heart, guiding my decisions? I can do better. I can live to make my heart a more perfect home for Jesus.
Father God, you are everything. You created everything. You gave me everything. You forgave me everything. I will strive to glorify you and to thank you, always. Amen
