One Life in Christ

John 20:31(AMPC), "But these are written in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of God, and that through believing and cleaving to and trusting and relying upon Him you may have life through (in) His name [through Who He is]."

As born again believers, it's essential we understand that being in Christ Jesus encompasses every aspect of our lives. It's simply unscriptural to think our spiritual lives are separate from our business ethics, our political views, our family values, or our personal attitudes and actions. When we accepted Jesus as Lord, we accepted His Lordship over every part of us. In Galatians 2:20 Paul placed great emphasis on the truth that our old, individualistic nature that lived according to our own will, independent from God’s has been crucified with Christ. Now it's no longer our own ideals or opinions or desires that reign, but rather Christ's! We have chosen His Spirit and the truth from His Word to govern and influence every part of our lives. We only have one life, and it's in Christ Jesus! Let this truth dominate everything you do today, and be aware of the fact that to live this way is really not something that is done in our own strength. It's done by faith. When we adhere to and rely on and completely put our trust in Jesus, yielding to His Holy Spirit, His Word becomes life and practical wisdom to us. This will light the way for us to walk in His perfect and good will for us - in every area of our lives. In every decision you make, remember it's no longer you that lives, but Christ Who lives in you!
