Opening Prayer: Give me the courage and the strength and the grace, Lord Jesus, to be crucified with you, so that I no longer live, but you live in me. It is the only way to true life. Amen.
Scripture: Galatians 2:20
Journal: What does it mean for you to be crucified with Christ? What does that look like?
Reflection: To be crucified with Christ means that I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. It means that my life is no longer about my own preferences, but about his preferences. It means that life is no longer about my own direction, but about his direction. It means that life is no longer about my own dreams, but about his dreams for me. It means that life is no longer about me, but about him. To be crucified with Christ means to surrender complete and total control to him alone; I no longer live, but Christ lives in and through me.
Closing Prayer: Forgive me, Lord Jesus, for being so resistant to being crucified with you, or being crucified at all, for that matter. Lord, have mercy! Amen.
