Dr. Chapell’s message this afternoon was on Galatians 2:20, on the life identified with the death and life of Christ. He made great points about grace, the fact that it’s not on the basis of our sanctification that we are justified, but that the entire message of the Bible is the grace of God shown us in Christ. I am dead with Christ–being crucified with Him is the antidote to spiritual pride, and also to spiritual despair. But I am also united with Christ in His life–and His life gives me power to live every day.
