“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.”
I read this and wanted to share this with others:
The reality of Christ living in me—Resurrection Life—first changed my heart and then my home.
If you have heard and believed lies about who you are, hear these words and never forget them:
Resurrection Life means…
You are unconditionally loved.
You are completely forgiven.
You are fully redeemed.
You are a new creation.
You are totally transformed from the inside out.
So where we used to join in the gossip, now we turn the conversation around. Where we used to lie to get out of a commitment, now we just say, “No.” Where we used to lose our temper and speak unkind words, now we stop, listen and then speak truth in love. Where we, though married, used to harmlessly flirt with other men, we now set boundaries with other men that are honoring to our husbands.
Psalm 139 tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Sin corrupted that creation, but the good news is that Jesus’ work on the cross returns to us the power to live in the fullness of how we were originally made. Free from sin.
Walk confidently in the newness of Resurrection Life!
Father, thank You that Christ lives in me! May I know deep in my heart that I am a new creation, transformed from the inside out. Help me to live in the fullness of the incredible gift of the indwelling power of Your Holy Spirit. I pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
