Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Galatians 5.24)
What does the way of the cross mean for us today when the majority of us will probably not be faced with crucifixion nor any other form of martyrdom? What does it mean for us to be “crucified with Christ” (Galatians 2.20) in 2017?
A. W. Tozer observed: “Many of us Christians have become extremely skillful in arranging our lives so as to admit the truth of Christianity without being embarrassed by its implications... We boast in the Lord yet carefully watch out that we never get caught depending solely upon Him. The one who is crucified with Christ makes daily decisions to affirm the reality of God’s leadership by denying his right to live like the “rest of the world.”
