Devotional Thoughts for Today’s Christian

Mar
22

Chambers challenges us as Christians to life a life of Christ through the faith of Christ Himself. He uses the passage that Paul wrote in Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ…” to remind us that Paul came to that place in his life that he no longer lived his life on his own. Read the full verse, “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.” Paul has told us that he no longer lives to himself…he has died to the nature of sin, he now lives only in Christ with Christ controlling his life fully; he is dead to self and has been crucified with Christ so how can he live to himself any longer?

Chambers is saying that when we are crucified with Christ He is the one who lives in us; we are at that point dead. We are who we are but the old nature that is influenced by Satan is dead or destroyed. Then and only then can we live in true holiness because we have once for all “live my life by the faith of the Son of God.” The writer says this is not my faith I live by but the faith of Jesus Christ. When one comes to this point, you are living by the faith of the Son of God, not your human faith in Christ’s faith. We are then changed and transformed. Chambers says, “That once I have been identified with Christ in His death and I reach that the moral decision and act on it, all that Christ accomplished for me on the Cross is accomplished in me.”

That is very powerful and needs to be meditated on so that we can begin to understand what Paul was saying in this wonderful and profound scripture, that many of just take for granted.

Devotional Thoughts for Today’s Christian

Mar
18

Paul says in 2 Corinthians 7:1, in part, “perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” Under the subject of “Will I Bring Myself Up to This Level?” Chambers wants you and I to consider living a life of holiness by the power of God in and through us. We live the Christian life by the promises of God and if we don’t, we live our life from the human perspective.  

God is forming His Son in us through sanctification – which is setting us apart from sin and making us holy in His sight. (Galatians 4:19, “My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you…”) God calls for our lives to be clean of sin and when we recognize sin in our lives we need to get rid of that sin so we can walk clean in Him.

Do we willingly let sin corrupt us or are we allowing the mind of Christ to be formed in us by bringing our lives under the control of the Spirit of Christ? The more He is in control of our lives the more we will submit to the will of God, and we live in holiness in the fear of God.  

Do you let God have His way with you? You and I are to make God first by committing our lives to Him above all else.
