Living by Faith

How often do we stop to ponder what we truly possess as a result of our salvation? If we could for just one moment stand in the complete fullness of what it really means, our lives would be so much more than they are at this moment.

Looking at Galatians 2:20, we can see a clear picture of who we are in Christ. “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

It states that “I am crucified with Christ” . . . the “I” that once was is no more !! 

“Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” Romans 6:6

“Nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me” . . . we no longer live in who “we” are but in the person of Christ through us. We have become a new creature in Him.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” I I Corinthians 5:17

“And the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God” . . . Now . . . Today . . . Not in Eternity . . . Now . . .  I live in the faith of the Son of God !!!!!!

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:7

Do we understand the true magnitude of the life that we possess, the power that lies within us through Christ ? 

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20

If only we lived in the true essence of the faith of the Son of God we are promised that nothing would be impossible. Living by faith means exactly that . . . Now . . . Every moment of every day, possessing the power of God through our faith in His Son Jesus Christ through whom nothing is impossible. That is the life that we now live, the life that has been given to us by a Savior . . . “Who loved me, and gave himself for me”. 

When the storms of life come, and they will . . . Hold on to the faith you possess through Jesus . . . The one who can calm the sea !!!

“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” Mark 4:39
