Living by His Faith by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Living by His Faith by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

… and the life which I now live in the
flesh I live by the faith of the Son of
God, who loved me, and gave himself
for me (Galatians 2:20).

When Jesus died on the Cross, He knew
that if we got to hear about His love, we’d
believe and become one with Him. He
had faith in what He did, in His vicarious sacrifice for us.
He trusted that we’d become everything He died, was
buried, and rose back to life for. That’s the faith of the
Son of God by which we’re to live.

Think about it this way: imagine that you have
a son who’s about to sit for his final exam. The exam
costs quite some money, but you’re ready to stake
everything. You say to him, “Son, all the money we
have at the moment is what we’re paying for you to sit
for this exam, but that’s nothing, because we trust you’d
be successful, and as a result, things will change for the
family.”

Now, your son understands that the hope of
the entire family is on him; he knows he’s got to be
successful at this exam; he can’t afford to disappoint
the family. So, he’ll act on your faith in him—which will
become his driving force. His friends may be partying,
but he’ll act differently, because he knows you’ve
invested everything in him, and wants to justify the
confidence reposed in him.

That’s akin to Galatians 2:20: the life we now
live, we live by the faith of the Son of God who loved
us and gave up everything for us. We can’t fail or disappoint Him. This is the reason you must live your
life differently, setting your affection on Him, on things
above, and not on things on earth or the flesh. Be
determined that you’d walk in, and manifest, the full
blessings of the Gospel which are yours in Christ. Live
to His dream; His expectation; live by the faith of the
Son of God!

CONFESSION
I was crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not
I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live
in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God who
loved me, and gave Himself for me. My life is ever for
His glory. Hallelujah!
