I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)
“The Holy Spirit is the head of God’s revelation department.” – Mark Hankins
People who are crucified do not survive. You cannot get into Christ and remain unchanged. You can go to church and not be changed much, but if any man be in Christ, there is radical change! Old things are passed away and everything is new. God took you to the cross with Christ, but He also raised you up with Christ in His resurrection!
When God finished with you, you were made alive in Christ. He made you a whole new creation; you became a new kind of creature that never existed before because Jesus did something that had never been done before!
Jesus brought God and man back together. When you get born again, you look like a man, but you are no longer just a man. When you are walking, God is walking because God lives in you. Paul said, “It looks like me, but it’s Christ, the Messiah! The Anointed One lives in me!”
Confession: Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations…Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:26-27)
