Living A Crucified Life – Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Living A Crucified Life – Pastor E.A. Adeboye

From the onset of the early Church, different people have sought to describe the crucified life.

My own understanding of the crucified life is one that is wholly given over to God in absolute humility and obedience.

It is a life of sacrifice that is pleasing to the Lord, and has its roots in Christ’s atoning work on the cross of Calvary, focusing on the death of the flesh to worldliness and sin.

Living a crucified life implies being dead to sin and being alive to God in holiness and righteousness.

Children of God living this way are transformed.

Children of God living this way are transformed in character into the image of God that they possess within them through Christ.

The two passages confirm that the subjection of our flesh to the power of the cross of Jesus Christ is not negotiable for us as Christians.

To be born again means to put our old way of life in the flesh to death on the cross, and to thereafter receive a new kind of life which is yielded to God in righteousness, made available through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

After you became born again, you need to enforce the power of the crucified life that you possess inside of you continually by not yielding your natural body as an instrument to sin.
