๐Ÿ‘‘ Christ Liveth Inย Me

โ€œI 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 meโ€ (Galatians 2:20).

โ€œHe is risenโ€ is not a simple blasรฉ clichรฉ!

When Jesusโ€™ disciples came to His tomb on that glorious Sunday morning nearly 2,000 years ago, they were startled to find it empty! Angels inform them that He has resurrected, but they are still in shock (Matthew 28:1-8; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-8). Jesus Christ Himself must later explain the Scriptures to them regarding what happened those last few days (Luke 24:44-46).

However, until Paulโ€™s ministry, Christโ€™s finished crosswork is not preached as good news for salvation. Peter and Israelโ€™s other apostles simply preach that Jesus Christ is now resurrected to โ€œsit on [Davidโ€™s] throneโ€ (Acts 2:30)โ€”that is bad news for much of Israel, for they still reject Him, weeks and months after His resurrection and ascension. Throughout early Acts, Israelโ€™s apostles warn her that Jesus Christ is coming back to judge them.

When we come to the Apostle Paulโ€™s ministry, we learn that we Gentiles can benefit from Jesus Christโ€™s finished crosswork. Israelโ€™s rejected Messiah is now our way to heaven! Yes, Israel hated Him, and demanded that He experience the most awful method of execution devised, but God allowed it in order to accomplish His will. Satan attempted to hinder Godโ€™s will by having Christ killed, but all that did was provide the method whereby God could save us Gentiles. Calvaryโ€™s finished crosswork frees us from Satanโ€™s evil system and gives us a chance to be Godโ€™s people (Acts 26:17,18)!

As people who have trusted Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection as sufficient payment for our sins, that crucifixion is our death to self and sin, and that resurrection is our raising to walk in newness of lifeโ€”His life (todayโ€™s Scripture; cf. Romans 6:1-11)!

Indeed, Jesus Christ is alive, and He lives in and through those who walk by faith in Godโ€™s Word to them, Paulโ€™s epistles of Romans through Philemon! source
