“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20).
Christ life is in harmony with our nature. A minister asked me the other day–a thoughtful, intelligent woman who was not a Christian, but who had the deepest hunger for that which is right: “How can this be so, and we not lose our individuality! This will destroy our personality, and it violates our responsibility as individuals.”
I said: “My dear brother, your personality is only half without Christ. Christ was made for you, and you were made for Christ, and until you meet you are not complete, and He needs you as you need Him.” I said: “Suppose that gas-jet should say, ‘If I take this fire in, the gas will lose its individuality.’ Oh, no; it is only when the fire comes in that the gas fulfils its very purpose of being. Suppose the snowflake should say, ‘What shall I do? If I drop on the ground I shall lose my individuality.’ But it falls and is absorbed by the soil, and the snowflakes are seen by-and-by in the primroses and daisies. Let us lose ourselves and rise to a new life in Christ.”
So, brethren there is where we have to find ourselves when we are in Christ. We must die in order to live again. Jesus demonstrated that to us when He died on the cross and raised days after to be alive forevermore. Many people have tried to kill you but realized later that you are a seed and will spring up again. That is how Christ sees us. He planted a seed in us which is watered by the Holy Spirit and daily bring forth fruits and flowers fit for the Kingdom of heaven.
