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. (Galatians 2:20)
As I read this Scripture, I am persuaded that our heavenly Father means business. When I think of the love shown to us through our Lord and Savior Jesus, I am moved with conviction and commitment. His love then permeates and marinades my soul. I then see a new man living inside of me, the son of God, Jesus himself! Has this not happen to all of us? Has the King of Kings and Lord of lords truly taken up residence in our hearts? How can we tell if this has taken place and truly the resident authority in our life is the son of God.
We are the body of Christ serving, caring and loving as the master himself; would he have been on the earth today. The pages of time will engulf our deeds into the years of forgetfulness, but God will never forget the labor of love to this loss and dying world. Jesus can never forget! So shall your reward be great. Praise the Lord
