- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
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.
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.

My sinful life must be dead thru Christ to find TRUE life. We must be born again...ask for forgiveness(and mean it) and actively turn away from future sin. We must do all this having the faith that God is living in us and helping us.

It is a great scripture that Paul was describing his experience of conversion by removing the old Adam, natural body, which is the source of sin was crucified by punting on Christ, as it was stated in Galatians 3:20. So this means the life he live in in flesh in only by faith that he has in the son of God. It is powerful. for in other part also he mentioned he is dead and his life was hidden in Christ.Blessings!

Hi. As I read the different versions and renderings of Gal. 2:20, I am struck by the differences in one little word. Here is the difference I see: "...I live by faith IN the Son..." denoting it is MY FAITH IN HIM, or, it is by HIS faith-NOT and my faith by which I live. I hope I did a good job explaining myself. If not, I will try again.

I thank Jesus for this life that I live now, I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.
