Gal. 2:20 ...It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith, by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me. - When our spirit-man was born-again, we instantly became united, as one, with Jesus Christ. We went from a place of death (spiritually) to a place of life (spiritually.) Faith was deposited into our hearts and the ability to live a victorious life became ours. This life of faith requires us to no longer depend upon our own efforts, but to put our complete trust in the One Who now lives on the inside of us.
