“Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and spiritual worship” (Romans 12:1)
“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” (Galatians 2:20)
People tend to have a struggle in their lives that won’t go away. As hard as they try, their problem has a grip on them that goes to the very cells of their body. Ultimately, the cross is the doorway to freedom, but only someone else can nail you to a cross. It is the destination for every believer that results in resurrection freedom!
