Galatians 2:20

 
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Galatians 2:20

What is it to have the life of Christ living in us? You may say to a glove, "Glove, pick up this Bible," and yet somehow, the glove cannot do it. It has a thumb and fingers, the shape and form of a hand, and yet it is unable to do the thing you command it to do. You may say, "Well, of course not. You have never told the glove how!" But you may instruct the glove over and over until your patience wears thin, but the glove, try as it will, still cannot pick up the Bible. But perhaps you have a glove you have used many times to pick up things, but never once without first putting your hand into it. But, as soon as you do, the glove becomes as strong as your hand. Everything possible to your hand becomes possible to the glove. That is what it is to have Christ, by His Spirit, dwelling with your redeemed humanity by faith. You are the glove, Christ is the Hand!
