“For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God.  I have been crucified with Christ; and 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 up for me” (Galatians 2:19-20).


Here we have the reality of how this life is to be lived.  We die to our self and Christ lives in us.  He who is able to keep the law keeps it for us.  Live then into the life to which you have been called through Christ that He who is in you may guide and direct you all the days of your life.  Do not worry so much about how, but be humble and willing and He who is in you will bring all things together according to the Father’s will.


Lord, You know all that is needed that I might live into the freedom You have given.  Guide me away from either lawlessness, or legalism that I might live in You and You in me.  Let me not fall prey to all the things that go on in this world, but live for You in the freedom You have purchased by Your own blood shed on the cross.  Lead me into the love You have poured out once for all.


Lord Jesus, what You have done is more than I can comprehend.  How all this works together I do not need to know, nor can I figure it all out.  Guide me into You, knowing You are in me that I may live the life You have given me.  Help me to be bold in faith, stalwart in grace, and free in life according to Your guidance.  Through all things remind me constantly that You are the One who has saved me and not the other way round.  Amen.
