The Christian life has some strange themes and ideas. It’s true. Many of the teachings of Jesus simply confused the people He was talking to. In today’s One Verse Podcast Devotional, Paul writes about death and life. A strange thing to write. Why would Christians be called to die? This idea of death and life deals with our spirit. We all have a dark side, deep down, that we would rather not think about. I do. The greed, jealousy, envy, pride, and lust that wants to creep up in my life. That is the “old flesh” as Paul called it in another passage. There is only one response to the old flesh: death. We crucify is with Jesus on the cross. BUT through this death, we experience true life in Jesus. We are transformed. We are given new life and the “new flesh” in Christ. Now, we no longer live for #1. Because Jesus didn’t either. He gave His life away. Let’s follow Jesus’s example and spread His Light and Love to this dark world.
