“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)
This is the key to living out our faith. It is not about gritting our teeth and trying harder to live righteous life. It is about letting Christ live in us. In John 10:10, Jesus said that He came that we have a full and abundant life. Learning to recognize the desires of the flesh and the urging of the Spirit living is us makes all the difference in the world. The more time we spend with Him and His word, the more we will know His heart and the more we will recognize when the enemy is trying to pull us away from His best for us.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for the gift of your Son and that you sent Him to not only provide a way of salvation, but also to live in and through me through the power of your Holy Spirit so that I may live the life you desire of me.
