Galatians 2:20-21. Paul explains how it is that a man is justified by faith. How does it work. I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me!. What a monumental statement. This truth kills the no-lordship gospel, it kills the Arminian gospel. It is personal, it is for a particular people that Christ gave Himself. It is Jesus Himself who dwells in us, as self is dead to the law. Christ reigns in the Christians life. In Christ, we are a new creation and He is Lord of it all!
