By Faith in the Son of God

Galatians 2:20
  • And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Jesus wants us to live the life in our flesh by faith in Him. Jesus desires to manifest Himself in us and through us to meet others and save them.

Jesus loved us and gave himself for us.

How do I know God loves me? Objectively, he willingly sacrificed himself on the cross to save us.

He gave away his life to save my life and entered into his death so that I wouldn't suffer my eternal death in hell.

Jesus is willing to manifest himself in us if we will let him. If we remind ourselves of the truth that He is in us and with us until the end of this age.

He can do much more when we hand over the rein on our lives to Him so that He can more freely guide us in the way we should go, and in turn blessings are sprinkled around our lives.

Let us also remember the sequence of events, Jesus loved us first and then died for us next. Jesus' love for us did not change before he suffered death on the cross. His love for us motivated him to die on the cross in our place for our sins so that we would no longer live for ourselves on our way to hell, but for Him on our way to heaven.
