Crucified in Christ – Beloved Women – April 29, 2020
READ: “I 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)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: We are reminded of God’s power and His Hand in Creation when we think of the metamorphosis of a butterfly. God took a little egg and made it into a beautiful creation. He does the same for us, as we accept Him as our Savior. We are no longer the same.
Butterflies cannot go back to being an egg, and with Christ now living in our hearts, we cannot go back to our old way of living. Christ is now living through us and we are forever changed. Sometimes situations, people, or the lies of the enemy want to take us back to that place where we used to be. However, we have the assurance that we are crucified in Christ and we are changed. We have new identities with a new life, and the power of the Holy Spirit at work in our hearts to help us overcome any obstacle or temptation that wants to take us back. As a result of Christ living in us, we are not who we used to be. May we live each day believing that in Him, we have new life.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, Thank You that You live in me. Thank You for the gift of Salvation and Thank You for new life in You. I praise You for my life and use me for Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: May we remember that we are crucified in Christ and we are changed people with new lives.
SHARE: Is there any area in your life that you doubt that you have been made new?
