Galatians 2:20 says:
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me…
+++Think about this, Christ lives in you. How? Through the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 reminds us:
19 What? know all of you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which all of you have of God, and all of you are not your own?
20 For all of you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
+++The Holy Spirit is in you so Christ can live through you. Remember you were crucified (died) with Christ when He died on the cross. Your newness of life now is all about Christ. When you think it’s in His mind (you have the mind of Christ). When you speak, it’s His Words, which is in your heart. When you act, it’s In His strength and the Power of His Might
“Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What, then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice. For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose, I can not tell. For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless, to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.”(Philippians 1:15-24 NKJV).
Then Philippians 2:13 says :
For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
+++Remember you have laid down (sacrificed) your life in Christ. Now, the life you live is for Christ and His glory.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.
Jude 1:24-25 NKJV
