Christ knows what living and dying in the same place is. He was both living and dying on that cross. That is such a symbol of what life in this world is like for us as Christians. Until He returns we die to ourselves daily and live in Christ at the same time and some days it just feels like more dying than living but let me encourage you today. THERE WAS A RESURRECTION!! And that is His gift to you and me. You can stand up under the pressure of today because of the hope of glory. Christ in you NOW and Christ FOREVER. You have already overcome, now just stand still. This is for me and this is for you. I needed to be reminded to just stand still. Stay in place and tough it out. It's heavy but you can carry it. In the blink of an eye, it's going to change.
