Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Ever have a night where you just can't get to sleep? I had one of those last night so I decided to read while I was awake. I got my Bible and was flipping between Galatians and Hebrews because I couldn't decide which one to read. Then, while in Galatians I was looking at chapter five and I saw something. Under the beautiful section about love, there was the above verse. I hadn't really noticed it before but it really stood out to me.
We, as Christians are supposed to give up the things of this world. Galatians 5:24 says the things of flesh have been crucified. Crucifixion is a long, ugly process. It doesn't happen instantly, and neither does getting rid of the things of this world. But once its been crucified, it is gone for good.
But you notice this verse doesn't say 'good christians will have their flesh with its passions and desiers crucified.' It says "Those who belong to Christ Jesus". Every single one of us.
Whats a verse that stood out to you this week?
