From your Pastor;

     “I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me...”
                                                                  Galatians 2:20

     Paul was not describing some kind of super-natural Christian life or experience in this verse. 
What he’s describing is the “normal Christian life”
     God has made it clear in His word there is only one answer to every human need; His Son, Jesus Christ. In all God’s dealings with men, His objective is to take us out of the way and substitute Christ in our place. The Son of God died instead of us for our forgiveness; He lives instead of us for our deliverance. Two substitutions; A Substitute on the Cross who secures our forgiveness and a Substitute within who secures our victory. 
     It would help us greatly, and save us from much confusion, if we keep this fact ever before us. The fact being that God will answer all our questions in one way and one way only. By showing us more of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Remember last week;
    “This is eternal life, that they may know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent...”                       
                                                                                   John 17:3

Is Christ your Substitute today?
