Part one of a three day series: "I am crucified with Christ" "I am crucified with Christ: it is no longer I who lives, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me" ......Galatians 2:20.

The cross of Christ stands in eternity as the greatest terminator of all time! At the cross, God has dealt with us perfectly and completely.The cross terminates all that I am as 'self' and translates me into all that that God has made Christ to be , for me. To be crucified with Christ is to know in your heart that God has included you and me in the...

"It was the good pleasure of God ... to reveal his Son in me.".....Galatians 1:15

I would not, even if I could, exchange places with the disciples, even on the Mount of Transfiguration! The Christ with whom they lived was the Christ in the flesh, a Christ limited by time and space. Was He in Galilee?

"The true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshipers." ....John 4:23

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart" ...Deut 6:5. The Decalogue opens with God's claim to exclusive worship. This expression of God's will is not only His command, it is also His desire. But if the ten commandments show us what gives God joy, the temptations in the wilderness reveal what will bring joy to Satan. In both cases it is...
