Galatians 2:20“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.
Paul says, as far as he was concerned, his days in the flesh were over. Kind of. His days of calling the shots came to an end. He was identified with Christ death thus He was given Christs life from that point on. Jesus' blood redeemed him. He now belongs to Jesus. The life he now would live would reflect that. Those who sign up in the military are familiar with this. You belong to the government. What does it mean to call Jesus LORD of your life? I know what it means to me. He is commander and chief of my nee found life. I dont have the option to call the shots, that left as I crusified the flesh. Now, I know its a day by day fight over just that alone, but my mindset is, its not an option.
