Does Christ Live in Your Heart?
Christ Lives in Me!
Text: Galatians 2:17-21
17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.
18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
20 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.
21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Let us Pray
The Grace of God that allows Christ to live in us, allows us to die to self and live for Christ is one the hardest concepts to learn as a Christian. When you Join the Military, go on a Cruise, fly on a plane some of the first things established is what you can and cannot do! I remember the Military as do some of you, that we were told when to get up, when to sleep, when to eat and we were told what we must do and also what would should never, ever do or else! The Apostle Paul was saying that Christianity is not about what we can and cannot do, but Christianity is about dying to our own agenda and allowing Christ to live in and through us! Christianity is not about doing or not doing, it is about dying to our own will and living for Jesus. So how do we do this?
We must all die! ( To our own self-will )and allow Jesus to be the true Lord of every part of our lives!
We must not Frustrate or confuse what Grace really is all about!
We had an amazing month of January topped off with a Mother/Daughter coming forward for Salvation, membership and Baptism! We will baptize this coming Sunday so don't miss two Baptisms, people showing that Christ is in their hearts and they want to Live for Him! Don't forget to lift these two up in prayer this week and pray for each other and your Pastor as well!
I love being your Pastor,
