We Live Life On God’s Terms

In his letter to the Galatians, Paul stated that those who belong to Jesus Christ crucify the flesh with all of its passions and desires. We were sentenced to death under the law’s curse because of our sins. We crucify the flesh by dying to ourselves—walking by the Spirit and saying yes to others more than we do to ourselves. Paul wrote in Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Instead of striving to defeat our sins on our own, we crucify our sinful desires by trusting that Jesus Christ already died for our sins once and for all. When we believe in Jesus and receive Him as our Lord and Savior, we live not in service to indulge self, but in service to God and other people.

It is impossible to live by the Lord’s ways on our own. But if the Spirit of God dwells in us, we are not in the flesh but in the Spirit. Even though we still have all the limitations of sin, we live life on God’s terms. The Holy Spirit that lives in us is alive not because of our efforts, but by the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Galatians 5:24 NIV

Let us keep in step with the Spirit that lives in us.
