"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me: and the life that 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 my Father God looks at me, He only sees Jesus! I am so identified with Christ in the eyes of my Father God that when He sees me, He only sees Christ! (When He sees me, He sees the anointed one.)

According to Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ." (I died alongside Him.) The fact that you see me alive is simply because Christ's Resurrection Life took over when my old self died.

My old self went to the cross with Jesus and died there. (Ceased to exist in that place)

My old self was not worth trying to save, improve, restore, or pretty up. In God's eyes my old self was already dead before the crucifixion. But my old self could never be effectively killed (as far as his control over my life) until my old self went to the cross with Jesus.

My old self had to die because God's Life could not be contained in him. My old self was unable to communicate with the Giver of Life.

Neither Jesus nor my old self survived the cross! We both died!

Jesus so identified Himself with me that death could not tell the difference. I am so identified with Him that life cannot tell the difference.
