Do We Really Belong To Jesus?

"Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires." — Galatians 5:24

If you really read this verse - I mean to honestly and truly read and understand the seriousness of the claim that this verse is making, it is crazy intense! Let's ask it this way, have you "crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires"? If not, if you are not daily crucifying your sinful nature, this verse is telling you to seriously consider whether or not you actually belong to Jesus.

Dang. I think we all should take some time and chew on that for a little bit. I am grateful that the GRACE of JESUS is strong enough and bold enough to cover even my daily failings in this. I am, as I reminded again and again, LOST without JESUS and his great LOVE and GRACE!
