“I am crucified with Christ.” Galatians 2:20

 

The Lord Jesus Christ acted in what He did as a great public representative person, and His dying upon the cross was the virtual dying of all His people. Then all His saints rendered unto justice what was due, and made an expiation to divine vengeance for all their sins. The apostle of the Gentiles delighted to think that as one of Christ’s chosen people, he died upon the cross in Christ. He did more than believe this doctrinally, he accepted it confidently, resting his hope upon it.

He believed that by virtue of Christ’s death, he had satisfied divine justice, and found reconciliation with God. Beloved, what a blessed thing it is when the soul can, as it were, stretch itself upon the cross of Christ, and feel, “I am dead; the law has slain me, and I am therefore free from its power, because in my Surety I have borne the curse, and in the person of my Substitute the whole that the law could do, by way of condemnation, has been executed upon me, for I am crucified with Christ.”

But Paul meant even more than this. He not only believed in Christ’s death, and trusted in it, but he actually felt its power in himself in causing the crucifixion of his old corrupt nature. When he saw the pleasures of sin, he said, “I cannot enjoy these: I am dead to them.” Such is the experience of every true Christian. Having received Christ, he is to this world as one who is utterly dead. Yet, while conscious of death to the world, he can, at the same time, exclaim with the apostle, “Nevertheless I live.” He is fully alive unto God.

The Christian’s life is a matchless riddle. No worldling can comprehend it; even the believer himself cannot understand it. Dead, yet alive! crucified with Christ, and yet at the same time risen with Christ in newness of life! Union with the suffering, bleeding Saviour, and death to the world and sin, are soul-cheering things. O for more enjoyment of them!

May it not said of us that we fall back to our vomit, as we have read about Apostle Paul who was death to sin that his corrupt nature cannot reign over him any more. We should be dead to sin and be alive in righteousness and so secure our victorious living through Christ crucify Amen!!!

Let’s drink more from the fountain of life dearly beloved, let’s learn to tell it as it is not the other way round:

                                                    Telling It Like It Is                                      

In our convoluted world of excuse making and blame casting — the mother of all “no fault” societies — we have:

Ridiculed the absolute truth of God’s Word and called it pluralism;

Worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism;

Endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle;

Exploited the poor and called it the lottery;

Neglected the needy and called it self-preservation;

Rewarded laziness and called it welfare;

Killed our unborn and called it choice;

Shot abortionists and called it justice;

Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem;

Abused power and called it political savvy;

Coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition;

Polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression;

Ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

As a people, surely we are under His indictment: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness… ” (Isaiah 5:20a)

If you, as a professed follower of Christ are living Biblically, you are an affront to your non-Christian associates. They don’t like what you stand for. Your values, focus and application of Biblical truth angers and annoys them: “Everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” (2 Timothy 3:12)

When my new neighbor found out I was a follower of Christ, his immediate reaction was, “You and I may have some problems.” (My determined purpose is to say less and love more – Such as helping him this morning dig out a leaky water main. And hey! It is working!)

QUESTION: Are you a cultural Christian or a Biblical Christian? Are your values, world-view, judgments, heart-involvement and lifestyle in line with Biblical truth or have you allowed the allurement – or pressure of the world to bend your values to conform to its seductive powers? “Dont let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God remould your minds from within… ” (Romans 12:2a – Phillips).

Beloved, our values and choices must be for Christ and not for the world. We must be true ambassadors of Christ and not otherwise for we have a great cloud of witnesses (Heb 12:1-3). And on the note we declare this week open and by the special grace of God return at the end with great testimonies in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord
