I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20 (NASB)
Have you ever gave much thought to the development of batteries? The differences in battery type and size over the decades is quite startling. Take hearing aid batteries for example which had to be worn in a holder strapped to your chest, now they are smaller than the now defunct half penny coin. The holy grail of battery research nowadays is long life electric batteries for vehicles, but even the latest rechargeable batteries expire eventually. No one has yet designed the perfect battery.
It was while meditating on Galatians 2:20 I remembered once when I was not just given a new battery…I got a battery upgrade! It was the night I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour thurty-six years ago. I remember that night clearly, I sang the chorus “It Is No Longer I Who Lives” all the way home. I had become a new creation in Jesus Christ.
Dear reader, when we accept Christ He enters our heart immediately. Our old battery has been replaced with the World’s first and only Eternal battery. The fuel source of the Eternal battery is our faith in its Creator, God Almighty. Our new battery lives and breathes, the living Son of God loves us and guides us every day forever.
