The Wisdom of a Crucified Life

“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

The wisdom of a crucified life is this: When you trust in Jesus, everything in your past dies on the cross with Him. Trusting Jesus also leads to eternal life, and most importantly, you don’t have to be afraid of death. There is no doubt that our world is becoming more affluent and materialistic, and many people are obsessing over the end of their lives and their eventual death. Many people live their lives from a place of fear and anxiety over this. The good news is that you do not have to fear death! 

Whenever you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you get new eyes, a new heart, and a new vision, which gives you peace of mind that you don’t have to worry about anything. God’s Kingdom is where we will live forever and be with Him forever. This allows you to not worry about getting a perfect spiritual report card. My advice would be to simply say, ”I will remove the rotten fruit of dwelling on and obsessing over my own death every day.” Rather than focusing on that obsession, you can ask: How can I become all that God created me to be, especially in service to others? 

Friend, the right questions are: What can I do to become the friend my friends need? How can I give hope to strangers when I meet them? How can I help people when I see them in need? God will give you the wisdom to accomplish these tasks. Walking in surrender to God will bring you peace and bless those around you.


Jesus, thank you for casting out my fear of death and for giving me peace of mind.

  1. I have a new heart. Satan has been in me in my heart. I do not know what happened to God being there. I have had help from God at times. It must be my sin why this has been going on for the past five years. I was at my sisters ex husbands church service quite some time ago for his funeral.I did not know it at the time but soon after words I felt Satan in my heart and in my thoughts about Gary my ex brother in law. I think both God and Satan are in me for some reason. I hope there is a positive reason and not just a bad outcome for my life and death. It happened in January 2019 when my doctor at the VA could not get the medicine I was on anymore. Thoughts streaming through my mind every night I could not get much sleep. One night the thought came to mind whoever the lord is that is when Satan took over. A lot of bad things happen to me after that.
