Galatians 2:20 ” I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”

What does it really mean to be crucified with Christ?  Again, we have this picture of putting off the old and putting on the new self.  It starts at the moment of redemption when as Romans 8:10 tells us, “But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.”  But it also becomes a lifetime journey of deliberate and intentional decisions on our part to subdue our worldly and fleshly lusts and desires.  And in doing so, our old self is crucified together with Christ so that sin cannot have preeminence in our life. (Romans 6:6)…as we purposefully live for the Will of God. (I Peter 4:2)
