THANKSGIVING FOR CRUCIFIXION
Thank You for working in such a way in our lives to bring about true success in all areas of life without sorrow. Thank You for affirming within us the right principles and living dynamics (“Christ in us, the hope of glory”,Col 1:29). Thank You for causing us to know the experiential reality of, “I have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless, I live, yet not I, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live, I live by faith in the Son of God who loves me and gave Himself for me.”(Gal 2:20)
Thank You for permitting enough suffering and failure in my life to keep us totally dependent on You and growing in a practical understanding of grace and in the true knowledge of Christ, both who He is in us and as the Second Person of the Trinity.
