What it Means to Have Christ in Me – A Candid Moment

November 2, 2020 |
Learning about Christ In Me

I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.

Galatians 2:2

Whenever I felt insecure, my Grandpa Gordon would chuckle and drawl out in his endearing Rocky Mountain accent: “Well, you’re part of me, see, so you’ve gotta be good.”

Grandpa Gordon was one of the most gentle and loving men I knew. I was proud to be a part of him, and his approval empowered me. When Grandpa Gordon died, each of us 5 kids insisted that we were his favorite. We all knew that he was proud to call us his grandchildren, and he loved us unconditionally.

And so it is as children of God. In the Book of Galatians, Paul tells us that Jesus shares much more than our bloodline. As His chosen child, you share His mind, His soul, and His heart. And He loves you so much that He gave His life to call you “Mine.”

Are you feeling “less than” today? I’d encourage you to open your Bible and speak to Jesus in prayer. Learn and remember who you are as His child and let Him empower you in His love. 

Happy birthday in Heaven, Grandpa. We all love you and we miss you.

    Good morning, Valerie ~

    ‘Christ in me.’

    When all is said and done, He is all we ever yearned for, searched for, needed.

    I am so grateful!
