Crucified With Christ!

Hi Everyone,

I think someone needs to get back to Work in Mexico and QUIT writing so much!(I am joking here! I hope I NEVER STOP OR GROW TIRED OF THE WONDER OF JESUS' LOVE AND THE CROSS!) But I wouldn't mind getting back to Mexico in God;s time of course. I just can't stop writing today, and I am not trying to be totally emotional, but I can't stop crying tears of joy as I write either! So I was thinking about the Galatians 2:20-21 passage that I referred to in the last post, and then this song came on my computer! (perfect timing!)

Crucified With Christ
Recorded originally by Philips, Craig, and Dean
written by Denise Phillips, Randy Phillips, Dave Clark, and Don Koch.

When I look back at what I thought was living
I'm amazing at the price I chose to pay
And to think I ignored what really mattered
'Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great

But when I finally reached the point of giving in
I found the cross was calling even then
And even though it took dying to survive
I've never felt so much alive

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives within me

His cross will never ask for more than I can give
For it's not my strength but His
There's no greater sacrifice
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live

As I hear the Savior call for daily dying
I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary
Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose
That holds me to the cross yet sets me free
I will glory in the power of the cross
The things I thought were gain I count as loss

And with His suffering I identify
And by His resurrection power I am alive
And I will offer all I have
So that His cross is not in vain
For I've found to live is Christ
And to die is truly gain

Everything in bold was my emphasis! What a DEEP song!!!!! SO TRUE!!!!

By His resurrection power I am alive----and I will offer ALL I HAVE, for I've found that to live is Christ and to die is truly gain!!!!!!!

Galatians 2:20-21 "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. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"

The best thing is to simply give up and trust Him!!!!!!!!
