Changed by the love of our Lord Jesus Christ

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14).

We are never the same again, once we have come to “the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” We are changed by his love. How are we changed? Paul puts it this way: “the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” The old life is over. The new life begins. Often, we forget what the Lord has done in our hearts and lives. Again and again, we need to be reminded that Christ has come to live in our hearts. We need to hear, over and over again, the testimony of Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me ” (Galatians 2:20). Through faith in Christ, our Saviour, this is, also, our testimony. Our old life has been crucified with Christ, We have begun to the new life in Christ. May God help each of us to live, more and more, in the power of Jesus, the risen Lord.
