Context: Earlier in Chapter 2, Paul opposes Peter to his face for wrongly separating himself from Gentiles when he ate. In verse 19 Paul says, “Through the law I died to the law, so that I might live for God.”
Galatians 2:20 – “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Observations: Paul considers himself a dead man. He went to the cross with Christ. His life is now all about living for God through faith in Christ.
Application: I must consciously think of myself as crucified. Today, I will look for opportunities to let Christ have full control through faith.
What kind of sacrifices must we be ready to make to live a crucified life?
