Crucified with Christ

Once near the end of his life Samuel Clemens was so sick that the newspaper reported that he had died. When Mr Clemens awoke to read story he quipped “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated!”

Paul shares a similarly astonishing report with his friends at church. He was in fact dead! But hold the presses because in fact he was still living! But wait there’s more! It isn’t me is Jesus in me that lives!

Strange and wonderful as that may seem it can be equally true for any of us. The moment we 100% trust our daily life to Christ we die…but wait because He lives by faith in us the news is we are still alive and will be for all eternity!
