Wesley's Notes for Galatians 2:20


2:20 The Apostle goes on to describe how he is freed from sin; how far he is from continuing therein. I am crucified with Christ - Made conformable to his death; the body of sin is destroyed. #Rom 6:6|. And I - As to my corrupt nature. Live no longer - Being dead to sin. But Christ liveth in me - Is a fountain of life in my inmost soul, from which all my tempers, words, and actions flow. And the life that I now live in the flesh - Even in this mortal body, I live by faith in the Son of God - I derive every moment from that supernatural principle; from a divine evidence and conviction, that he loved me, and delivered up himself for me.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 2:20


Ga 2:20 I am crucified with Christ. By faith Paul was crucified at his conversion, crucified in the flesh, died to the old life with Christ. Now he lives, or rather, Christ liveth in him. The old life is laid aside, and the new life is a Christlike life, due to the spirit of Christ. He is now merged in Christ. Live by the faith of the Son of God. Faith is the bond that binds him to Christ and enables him to live the new life.

    Jesus have come to give us life in abundance. We are saved by his grace as God's grace are sufficient enough for us to be saved. Our Faith comes only by hearing the word of God as God's words are powerful to meditate than prayers. Jesus is the bread of life and the light of the world He who believes in him will not be perish but have an everlasting life. What a promising God and what a faithful Father to his words given for us. Jesus made everything new our job now is to believe in him, follow him and obey his words. He who loves him will keep his commandments. Thanks to Jesus for his blood that shed for us. Through his precious blood only our sins are washed away, our ungodly things are cleansed. We need only to trust Jesus and live like him until rapture. I will keep praising God and thank him for he is worthy to be praised. Amen
  • Paul Says Were are crusified with christ ,is true because he himself was an apostle of the Lord, galatians 2:20 teaches us that christ died once and for all, hence we should belief in christ our saviour who paid the price for sin, by our faith should we know that we were crusified with HIM
  • Naas immelman for verse 20
    I am sure that all the children of God now lives in Jesus Christ,although still in the flesh, by His faith.He is the New testament arch,as Noah was in the arch we are in Jesus Christ therefor nothing can divide us ever from Him again.
  • This is Romans 6-8, condensed into one verse. Notice the first half of the verse summarizes our death and resurrection with Christ. But the latter half of the verse focuses on our life of faith in Christ as our enabler. Progressive sanctification or, we could say, the resurrected life is by faith. That doesn t mean we sit back passively and do nothing. It means we trust our Lord to enable us in our doing! Paul makes very clear that sanctification is by faith.

  • Michael Walker for verse 18
    It certainly gives you a great perspective on Paul 's frame of mind and degree of conviction in his faith, at the time. More importantly however, he emphasizes how critical it becomes for followers of Christ to refrain from reverting back to Legalism which works counter to their faith in Christ and His sacrifice on the Cross and prevents them from justification.
