Loved by God

Rhododendron


"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 (NASB)

____________


When one has been saved by grace, through faith, through Christ alone — they become a new person.  Their old person is dead. Their sinful life was crucified on the cross with Christ. They become a new creation. They are no longer condemned by the Law. The self-centered self now becomes the Christ-centered self.   Through Christ alone they live — enjoy a present life,  and have the hope of future glory.

It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who made him.
~ Abraham Lincoln
