Looking for the Dead among us.

God ask me this question for my last bible study. His actual question was, Who is dead in Christ Jesus? When I asked the question, I raised my hand. But no one else did. Then I said, Am I going to have to preach on salvation again? The word of God is specific. The Old Testament or the law taught us that we were sinners separated from God. And the we needed to seek God to repent of our sins and ask for forgiveness. Because we were dead in sin. God’s redemption required that we would die to ourselves and come alive to Jesus. But when we did, we were also required to stay dead to ourselves so that Jesus could live through us. Gal.2;20 “I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live, yet not I, 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.” I am dead to sin and I am dead to self. But I am alive to Jesus. I am dead to this world, so I can let Jesus live through me. It has been one of the hardest thing spiritually I had to do. And I have had to start again and again. It is because I am not perfect, I am walking through this world to reach the other side. But I know that if I stay in Christ Jesus, I will reach mine goal. Which is living in the presence of God forever. So the goal of my death is living in Christ Jesus. So, I die daily.
