Show Notes:

  • On this episode, Robert examines what it means to live a saved life from Galatians 2:20
  • THE COST
    • “I have been crucified with Christ…” (Gal. 2:20)
    • cf. Gal. 1:4; 2:21; 3:1, 13; 6:14
    • 1 John 5:19
    • How this crucifixion to which Paul refers accomplished? Through baptism (Romans 6:1-4).
    • The extent of Paul’s sacrifice reached far past the initial act of his baptism. He lived a faithful life.
  • THE CHARACTER
    • “… it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me”
    • This was a change in Paul’s character. He would now live after Jesus’ example (1 Cor. 11:1; cf. 1 Pet. 2:21-24).
    • Luke 9:23
    • Philippians 3:7-11
    • Colossians 3:1-5
    • 2 Corinthians 5:15
    • Romans 6:11
    • Romans 12:1-2
    • This is a change of heart that is seen in a change of life.
  • THE CONVICTION
    • “… and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith in the Son of God”
    • Paul’s existence, though still in the flesh, was now far different than it was before!
    • As a Christian, I now live by faith (2 Cor. 5:7; Heb. 11:1, 6)
      • Faith comes from God’s Word (Rom. 10:17).
      • To live by faith is to live in obedience to the Lord’s Word (Col. 3:17).
      • My sights are now set on heaven (2 Cor. 4:16-5:1).
    • It is clear that this kind of life is not easy. How can I do it?
  • THE CHRIST
    • “… the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”
    • In Christ we find the power to live faithfully!
    • Paul says his obedience is directly related to his recognition of what Christ did for him.
      • Here is a great key both to dedication to Christ and lack of it.
    • Paul recognized the motivating power in Christ’s death (1 Cor. 1:21-24).
