Let’s say you were completely exhausted and didn’t have the energy to live today – that you just wanted to sleep all day. Let’s further say that you called upon Jesus to take your place, and live out your life for you while you took the day off.
In this scenario, how would Jesus live your life? What might He do differently?
When you have a clear picture of how Jesus would live your life today, you will know how you should live it.
Living a Christian life means thinking, speaking, and acting as Jesus would if He took on your responsibilities for you.
As the apostle Paul put it:
I have been crucified with Christ; and 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 up for me.
– Galatians 2:20
