Crucified with Christ

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. Galatians 2:20

Here is another of the verses that we should all commit to memory. Churn it around in your mind over and over and over again. It’s so rich and deep in meaning and significance. We are to live a crucified life, what does it mean? Romans chapter six tells us that as Believers we are now dead to sin and alive to Christ. Again, it speaks of a crucified life. Sin should no longer have mastery over us. Whatever the master chooses should be good enough for me.

So, what does this mean day to day? Philippians 2:4 helps us out:
Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same of Christ Jesus, who being in very nature God did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant.

Essentially it boils down to this: it’s not about you. Or me.

It’s certainly a start.
