Nevertheless I Live

I present my body to Jesus Christ as a living sacrifice through the resurrection power of God. That is how I present it—through Him. I don’t present my body as if I am trying to die. I present it as one who has already died.

As I present my body to Him, I make sure there is no place for the devil to take over with any need or want. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want,” wrote the Psalmist (Psalm 23:1). I died with Christ at Calvary, but I was also raised with Him from the grave. And now, it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.

We are delivered through death, not unto death. Until I understand this as experiential truth, I need to keep confessing the positional truth that I died with Christ and that, nevertheless, I live in His resurrection. My experience in victory will come. How do I know? The Bible tells me so. I live as more than a conqueror, and I know He always causes me to triumph.
