"I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me and the life Which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me." Gal. 2:20
Long ago at Calvary great new was made. From the simple framework of the cross souls have been freed from the grip of sin and death. Calvary enables us to be projected into a new world in the spiritual realm. Persons so freed from their sins and placed into new spiritual life are in orbit around the true Sun, the Son of God.
It is important for us to remember how this came about. When Christ mounted the cross at Calvary, the earth shook and fires flashed. Freeing us of the weight and burden of sin and death cost Him labor and untold anguish. But He bore our sin and died for us.
Christian friends, We were crucified with Christ, and with Him we rise in newness of life, to heaven's heights, above the fears and darkness of this sin-filled world into realms of peace and joy.
Buried with Christ and raised with Him too, What then is left for me still to do? Simply to cease from struggle and strife, Simply to walk in newness of life.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - We died in Christ, now Christ lives in us.
