Twelfth Day of Easter
Help me to remember that “I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.” Help me also to remember that “the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:19b-20).
Help me to remember that your eternal life—the life that is outside of time, the most real life there is, the life that has ultimate meaning—is in me through the presence of the crucified and resurrected Christ. Help me to live with ever-growing trust in Christ who loved me enough to give himself up for me that I might have ever-increasing access to your life through him.
Help me to live my life in ways that demonstrate that I am living my life in his strength rather than in my own.
Help me to live his life through my life that it might become natural for me to love other people and to give myself for them.
