2.21.14 “My life … Am I losing control or giving control?”

  Galatians 2:

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

“My life … Am I losing control or giving control?”

This verse reminds me of the phrase that Delton occasionally uses in his sermons … “You are God and I am not!”  It’s in our sinful, human nature for us to want to control all aspects of our lives.  We want to control our time, our finances, our relationships, and even our children!  And yet, as Christians “crucified with Christ” we must to let go and trust in God in all things.  Living “by faith in the Son of God” is the only appropriate response for us in given the ultimate sacrifice of God’s perfect son.  We can be in no better hands than those of the God of the universe.  By following the dictates of Galatians 2:20, we should not fear “losing control”, but take comfort in giving control to One so much more capable of guiding our lives than we could do on our own.
