I Can Do Something About That // Tuesday, September 16
Posted: Tuesday, September 16
Verse of the day:
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 5:20)
“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.” The other day our car battery died. It was shot. What did we need? We needed a new battery. Our lives before Christ are shot because of sin. Jesus gives us new life in Him. Before I could get a new battery, I had to give up my old battery to the parts store (or pay more). When we come to Christ we give up our old sinful man so we can have the new life Christ gives.
It was when we were picking up our daughter from school that all this happened with our battery. I was very grateful to the man who took time out of his busy schedule to help us. He jumped our car two times, removed our battery, took me to a parts store and back and put the new battery in for us. He went well beyond just saying, “It’s your battery”. He did something.
“…I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Christ did something too. He went way out of His way to help us when He went to the cross “and gave himself for us” so we could have new life and be forgiven of our sins. What love Jesus has for us. He saw our old sinful life and said “I can do something about that!” because He loves us that much. “… live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me (us) and gave himself for me (us).” “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
