The Life of Christ Within

“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.”

– Galatians 2:20

These are trying times. What I’ve realized as I’ve corresponded with people throughout this season is that no matter how we’re handling it, we’re all struggling to some degree. Thankfully, for those of us who have accepted the Lord’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, we have His very life flowing through us. As Christians, we’ve entered into a relationship with the God who knows us intimately and pursues us passionately. Even while we were lost, He took our fallen and messed up lives and traded our problems for His perfection. Therefore, when He looks at us, He doesn’t see our mess, He sees us blessed, because He beholds the image of His Son Jesus within. You see, when we made a choice to trust His overflowing, never-ending goodness to save our souls, we gave God permission to exchange our weary, broken, and troubled spirits for His abundant, eternal, and bountiful life. Since we live, move, and have our being in Him, we no longer need to rely on our own strength to get us through tough times — we have the very essence of God working in and through us to accomplish His good purpose on the earth!

My friend, coming to the end of yourself is a good thing, because only then can you fully embrace the life of Christ within you. At the moment you feel ready to “throw in the towel,” His strength, energy, wisdom, and grace are only beginning to flow. The rivers of His favor abound to meet you at your point of greatest need, and when you can’t go another step, He will pick you up, place you on His strong shoulders, and carry you further into His glorious plan. You have no need to fear, child of God, because your Savior is with you in each moment of adversity, and He delights in causing His streams of abundance to abound to every area of your life.


I am grateful, Jesus, to have your life flowing through me today. I place my struggles in your hands and ask that you would bring your abundance to them.


What does it mean to you to have the life of Christ at work in you?
