2 Cor 5:13-16 (NET) For the love of Christ controls us, since we have concluded this, that Christ died for all; therefore all have died. 15 And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised
Many have asked me how they can live lives controlled by the spirit. I have also asked this question several times.
One very important doctrine Christians must never forget is the truth that reveals to us that we were included in Christ when He died, and because of this, we were also included in Him when He resurrected into eternal life. Understanding this truth is the secret to living a victorious life above sin. It is the secret to live a life controlled by the Spirit.
Your old man of sin has been crucified with Christ, therefore it is dead. All that is left is your new man of righteousness which is actually the life of Christ. It is no longer you who lives, but Christ now lives in you. You now no longer live for your own pleasure but for God’s pleasure.
Quit thinking that your life belongs to you. Know from today that your whole life now belongs to Christ. Tell yourself this truth until your mind accepts it. Because when this has happened, you will realize that your body no longer belongs to you and you will let Christ control it. This is what it means to accept Christ as your Lord. Lord means owner and controller.
Go into today meditating on this truth:
Gal 2:20-21[NET]: I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So the life I now live in the body, I live because of the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not set aside God’s grace, because if righteousness could come through the law, then Christ died for nothing!
