I want to share a bit of my journey in/with Jesus Christ.

It is written in Galatians 2 that I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live but He lives in me. My old Adam is dead.

I can bear witness of Christ in me that Christ does not protect Himself. But when someone strikes Him on the right cheek, He will turn the other to him also. I don’t know how it happens, but it is natural for us who believe in Christ Jesus to carry the cross, deny ourselves and to follow Him (it is accepting that the old man is dead no matter how I feel or even act) .

I know what it means to protect myself too.

The first one is Life and Peace but the second brings death.

I have learned this through the contrast.

I know I so often continue to choose death in so many areas. But I am thankful that death is not stronger then life. Darkness cannot over come light. You cannot shine a dark beam into the light to make it dark, but the cheapest flashlite cuts through the deepest darkness. Praise GOd that Jesus is the LIGHT of the world.

What have we do do with the darkness, except see that it works for us to reveal that which we really are, as you mentioned -- in the contrast.

Other thoughts?
