You are armed with the knowledge that you can be free and choose not to live it. DT
20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
So you can read this and interpret this any way you want. Today I submit this. If you are crucified with Christ and He lives in you then who are you? You are nice to people at church, but an jerk to your spouse? Let say you own a business, do you treat your employees’ the way you want to be treated?
Do you choose where you want to be crucified with Christ? Think about this for a moment. If I asked your employees, your spouse or the people you do business with if you were different than whom you say you are, what would they say? I have to be on guard all the time. We are constantly given opportunities to either be Jesus with skin on or to be the person who says he is Jesus with skin on but acts contrary to what he says.
One more example: the easiest place to be the jerk is with people who don’t know who you are. How many times have you been a jerk to someone because you knew they did not know you walk with Jesus?
I have that hat and shirt…….. been there and I am embarrassed to say that, but it is true. Lord please forgive me
Be blessed today!
