No Turning Back Now

What actually took place is this:  I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law” (wo)man and so that I could be  God’s (wo)man.  Christ’s life showed me how and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God.  Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine “‘ but is lived by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.  I am not going to go back on that.  –  Galatians 2:19-21
