“What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. 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. I am not going to go back on that. Is it not clear to you that to go back to that old rule-keeping, peer-pleasing religion would be an abandonment of everything personal and free in my relationship with God? I refuse to do that, to repudiate God’s grace. If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily.” -Galatians 2:19-21 (msg)
“…Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not ‘mine,’ “
Taste and see the beauty of being His. Complete and perfect in Him. Christ lives in us, making us new from the inside. We no longer have to go around defining ourselves, we are defined in Christ. This is no longer our life to shape and mold to suit us – but to let the Master Creator have His way with us so that we can once again be Complete.
God whispers, “Be Mine. I love You. I will not leave you or forsake you. Trust me.” Friends, I pray we let go and let God be our all in all.
