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.
This verse reminds us that when we accept Christ into our lives, we are no longer living for ourselves. Instead, we are living for Christ, and it is He who lives in us. Our old selves have been crucified with Christ, and we are now new creations in Him.
But what does it mean to live by faith in the Son of God? It means that we trust in Him completely and put our faith in His power and His promises. It means that we rely on Him for our strength, our hope, and our salvation.
Living by faith also means that we surrender our own will to His. We allow Him to guide us and direct our paths, even when it's difficult or uncomfortable. We trust that He knows what is best for us and that He will never leave us or forsake us.
In conclusion, as Seventh-day Adventists, we are called to live by faith in Jesus Christ. May we always remember that it is He who lives in us, and may we surrender our lives to Him completely. And may we trust in His power and His promises, knowing that He will never leave us or forsake us.
