Verse of the Day: Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.
The words repeat themselves in my head, “the life that I now live”. It’s only by God’s grace and mercy I have “the life that I now live”. It was not so long ago I lived a different life, a life focused on myself, a life without purpose or peace. In order to get to where I am today I had to leave that life in the past. I had to surrender my life to God and focus on the future He has planned for me. Now, because of God’s love, I live not on my own power or strength but through faith in Jesus Christ who loves me so much He died on the cross for me. I had to stop living in the past and start living by faith. Because He died for me, I now live my life for Him.
