“But we’re only human…”
For one who has accepted Christ as Savior, that statement–usually offered as an excuse for sin–is a powerful example of a half-truth being a whole lie. The foundation of the Christian life is that our flesh is crucified and our life is in Christ. “But we’re only human…” has the sound of humility but it emanates from the father of lies.
Galatians 2:20 says: My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
True humility sets the flesh aside and boasts in the power of the Cross…in the One who triumphed over the father of lies by dying on the Cross.
May I never boast in anything except the Cross of Jesus Christ–by whom the world was crucified to me and I was crucified to it (the world). Galatians 6:14
Victorious Christian living NEVER trust in the flesh. The flesh is ‘circumcised and buried in Christ’ – cut off, put away!
Knowing the source of our life, surrendering to His life and power in us, is the key to victory. Take time to feed on these truths and fight lies that rob God of the glory He deserves. Claim Christ’s victory and help others do the same!
Faith is the key to our victory. Ephesians 3:17 tells us that Christ dwells by faith. 2 Corinthians 13:5 admonishes us to be certain of our position of faith! Faith is not just a reading of words or an emotional desire. Faith is confidence that creates action.
Live the reality of the redemption!
Jesus did not stay on the Cross or in the grave…He rose in eternal life.
