O Is for Old Self

O Is for Old Self

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20

 

What happened to my old self? It was crucified with Christ. Your old self is dead. You no longer live. From now on, Christ lives in you. You are the embodiment or incarnation of Christ, meaning God is living in your fleshly body.

You merely tune in to Christ and ask Him to live through you. Allow Him to lead and guide. Give Him permission to work through you. Set aside your self-interests and be willing to change course to help someone else if Christ leads you to do so.

We now live our lives by trusting Christ to live through us. We no longer live. We simply let Christ live His life through us.

I like your style

 

About twice a month I send out a brief email containing free PDF downloads, updates on what projects I’m writing, and insider news on special offers. After all, friends get the best stuff!

You’ll find my brand of humor in many of the emails, especially in funny photos. There is joy in the Lord and we all need to laugh more.

I respect your privacy so I don’t even collect your name (I will need your email address, though!). I don’t like SPAM any more than you do so I’ll never sell or trade your information and my email service, MailChimp, stores your information on secure servers.

If you ever decide my content is not right for you, you can easily unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of each email.

No strings attached. No long-term commitments. No overwhelming volume of emails. Just fun, free downloads once or twice a month. How’s that sound?
