When we were baptized into Christ, we shared in his crucifixion and we were raised up to be a new person. Christ is alive in us. The real challenge is for us to be Christ alive in our world! Our motivation? Not to earn salvation, which has already been given us by grace, but to honor him who sacrificed all to save us
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
— Galatians 2:20
Dear Lord thank you, for loving us and sending Jesus to redeem us from our sin. We commit to you today that we will live by faith in your Son who gave himself so we can spend eternity with you. We ask that by your Spirit, you help Jesus' life be seen in us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
