True Christian Joyful victorious surrendered devotional purposeful meaningful holy Godly life



I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer
I that live, but Christ liveth in me: and that life which I
now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in
the Son of God (Gal. 2.20)
Having seen the kind of life ordained by God as well as the life
we actually live, the way of victory according to God as well as the
way according to man, together with the genuineness and nature of
the life that wins, we will now learn how we enter into this victorious
life. And a most important question naturally arises here: how can we
obtain Christ as Victory?
The verse just quoted above shows us how to enter in. Let us first
discuss the words, “it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me”;
because such is the life we ought to enter into. Negatively, we may
say “it is no longer I that live” Positively, we may say that “Christ
liveth in me.” In Paul’s letter to the Galatians, he testified that he had
already arrived at this place, he had already possessed this
experience, and he had already entered in. Let us observe how he
arrived, possessed and entered. For the way Paul entered in is the
way we also will enter in. The way he entered in is revealed by the
clause preceding and the clause succeeding the words, “it is no
longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me” The first condition to
entering in is spelled out by these words: “I have been crucified with
Christ”; and the second condition to entering in is found as follows:
“and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith
which is in the Son of God.” By fulfilling these two conditions in his
life Paul obtained Christ as his victory—as his righteousness,
sanctification and redemption.
