Galatians is deeply theological - but it's also intensely personal. Paul writes, I died to the law... that I might live for God... I no longer live, but Christ lives in me... I live by faith, in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. It wasn't just theory, but a personal revelation - the conviction that he lived out of. Meditate on Paul's words in vv.19-20 - put yourself in them. What is God asking you to die to? What does it look like for you to live by faith, right now, in this current season?
In Galatians 3:3, Paul writes: How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? (NLT). Sometimes, we begin with the Spirit - that is with faith in Jesus for our salvation, but then we start to get into striving for our sanctification (really, that's a fancy word for becoming like Christ, being perfected into His image). God intended that both our salvation and our transformation would be a work of the Spirit. Ask Him to show you if there is any area that your are relying on your own efforts instead of keeping in step with the Spirit.
Jesus, today I choose faith over works. I choose to die to myself and to live for You. Thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit - I believe that He is at work within me, transforming me from the inside out so that I can reflect Your glory. In Jesus Name, Amen.
