CHRIST LIVES IN ME

Samuel A CainI have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20 ESV)

“Christ lives in me;” These are wonderful words. It is a beautiful phrase – “Christ lives in me.” All who “live by faith in the Son of God” may truthfully say this. A Christian is never alone because Christ lives in him. The life he now lives belongs to Christ. The treasure of his heart is Jesus Christ.

Jesus suffered and died on the cross for all who would believe in Him. Christ loved them, gave Himself for them, and rose from the dead to confirm His promise of eternal life. A Christian lives in the grace of Christ and is dependent upon Him. Jesus Christ is not only the author of spiritual life, but of life itself. A Christian is united heart and soul to Him.

The Christian lives by faith in Christ. From Him he seeks Gospel progress in righteousness, joy, peace, love, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23 ESV) “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” (Galatians 5:24 ESV) “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV)

When Christ lives in you, you begin to live by faith in Him. You reject righteousness through your own merits and understand that it is only possible through the work of Jesus. Your current life and future no longer depend upon your own works, but entirely upon the merits of Jesus who loves you and gave Himself for you. Christ in you is the power of life transformation. Without His spiritual power, you can do nothing. What a glorious blessing it is to be able to say, “Christ lives in me.”
