“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me…” Galatians 2:20
In Christ I have been crucified. This is an accomplished fact. The power of sin has been broken. But the Bible says I am to put to death all sinful deeds in my life. When I do so the freedom from sin which Christ accomplished for me on the cross becomes operational. But what does this look like in everyday life?
Jesus said it this way, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.” Self-denial is what we continually do to put sin to death in our lives. In this series we will look at the practical aspects of living a life of self-denial; the ways we say no to ourselves and enter into resurrection life through the Holy Spirit.
