Crucified with Christ

What does it mean to be crucified with Christ?

It means that my life ends, right? Life as I once knew it? Is that a good thing?

Let’s take a look.

When I’m crucified with Christ, what really comes to an end?

Selfishness … living for myself instead of living for the one who made me Pride … thinking I know everything Fear … worrying what people will think of me Myopia … chasing after a pipe dream; missing God’s bountiful dreams-come-true Exhaustion … trying to do it all myself Sickness … He beat that at the Cross; by His stripes I am healed Death … how’s that for irony; if I die with Christ, I get to live forever

I have a feeling this list could go on.

It doesn’t need to.

I’m convinced.

How about you?
