For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. 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. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
Do I really believe this? Sometimes my behavior shows me that I have a lot more to believe! There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. I am the Righteousness of God in Christ.
Jesus thank you for your love for me. Give me the strength Lord, allow me to be strong and courageous. Without You I can do nothing.
