Our Position in Christ

I was reading this verse this morning:
"I have been crucified with Christ; 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 for me." (Galatians 2:20)

And then I thought of this song. So I decided to share it with you! :-)

The little commentary under that verse (in my Bible) says, "Thus the believer's rule of life is Christ and not the law.  It is not a matter of striving, but of trusting.  He lives a holy life, not out of fear of punishment, but out of love to the Son of God, who loved him, and gave Himself for him..."  Spend some time today thinking about that verse.  Not only did Christ give himself for us, He LIVES in us, and we are positionally IN Him!   We are not only saved from the penalty of sin in death, but also from its power over us in life!
