“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.” Galatians 2:20 (NKJV)
“14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.” Romans 13:14 (NKJV)
What does it mean that I no longer live, but CHRIST lives in me?
Could it mean that this life I live – my wants, my needs, my desires, my will – must be replaced by HIS wants, HIS needs, HIS desires, HIS will, even when HIS will is in direct opposition to my best interest and self-preservation?
WeRemnant members and many persecuted Christians around the world say, “Yes, absolutely. Welcome to my everyday life.”
This also means we are consistently preferring the JESUS-way over our political, traditional, tribal, socioeconomic ways.
When we think of it that way, it seems to me that loving JESUS is not just a cute phrase after all. In fact, it sounds like an action statement. It sounds like, and is, a battle cry against self-glorification, self-idolization, and self-devotion. My love for JESUS means that I die to my will and live for HIS will alone.
Sounds harsh. But that is the Christian walk, everyday.
It is a life of selfless sacrifice unto the LORD, to be used by HIM to care for others in need and many whom the world has forgotten or abandoned. That is the love-life with JESUS way.
GOD reminds us in 1 Corinthians 1:27-29, that HE has chosen the forgotten, the broken, the despised.
27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence. 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 (NKJV)
We, the Remnant of JESUS CHRIST, know this already. Flowery words of man, circumstances, and false gestures of ideologies do not move us. We the Remnant, received a Heart transplant. We gave JESUS our hearts, and HE gave us HIS Heart.
As a result of this transplant, we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, come to the aid of the sick, build schools, dig wells, provide medical supplies and put processes in place to rescue abandoned infants. Your generosity is a direct result of your heart transplant and the items above, are the tangible results.
Your gifts of love make these things happen every day for those the world despises but GOD has not forgotten.
Our love for JESUS results in actions. Those actions demonstrate HIM to the world.To continue to support our WeRemnant family, please visit https://weremnant.org/donate
