Galatians 2:20 (New King James Version)

20] I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Christ Is Alive In Us

Galatians 2:20 reveals another shocking truth. We, as a body of believers, are not just around claiming that we are "little copies of Jesus." God, through His Son, has transformed us into entirely new persons who did not exist before. Galatians 6:19 tells me that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is within me, and I am not my own. There is great mystery involved here that we'll only understand fully when we meet our Lord face to face in eternity. But, the bottom line is this, the Church which is His Body, is the physical organism through which God works. Believers are not just "imitating" Jesus. An imitation is a copy of the real thing. We are actually God's fingers, toes and His feet on earth. Now, that's real!

FOR TODAY: The good news is Christ died to give us new life. Pass it on.
