“I have been crucified with Christ.” Those are not my words; they are the words of the apostle Paul. Yet you and I can adopt them as our own.
We can accept Christ’s death as our death, and then live His life instead of the one we have been living.
Jesus died to show the futility of life in this world. Sin has tainted the creation and nothing is ever going to work out the way it should. Have you not noticed that those seeking worldly glory and power and pleasure are invariably disappointed in their quests?
If life is going to be worthwhile, it is in living for values that outlast this temporal world. These are the values that guided Jesus of Nazareth. And through Him, these same values can guide our lives.
Let us therefore embrace Christ’s death as our own, that we might embrace His life as our own.
