There is a natural human tendency to be self-sufficient in life, and that inclination carries over to our spirituality. The apostle Paul admits his own struggles trying to make himself righteous by following the law. However, embracing the new covenant of grace brought him peace beyond human understanding. Rather than relying on his personal effort to live right, he chose to crucify “self” and allow Christ to live his life through him. This month Pastor Callis will offer a biblical framework for what it means to live the crucified life.
