DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Have You Been Crucified With Christ?
Paul claimed that he was dead to the law that he might live unto God (v. 19), and that the nature of his death was through crucifixion, which was the way in which Christ was put to death. By this statement, Paul meant that he became dead to the law, dead to the world and dead to sin. The Redeemer, by the death on the cross, became insensible to all surrounding objects, the same way Paul, and by extension, all believers, must become insensible to the things of the world, ambition and the love of money, pride and pomp of life, evil and hateful passions. It is only a crucified life that can live a life that is pleasing to God. So be crucified with Christ.
Point of Emphasis: Live your life by faith in Jesus, the Son of God.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to be insensible to all forms of sin.
