“Swimming in Christ”

.”I have been crucifed with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed by the faithfulness of God’s son who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galations 2:17-19.

 

I sometimes get caught up in what people think of me.  But the one thing in hanging out and working with these kids you come to understand it does not really matter. They simply don’t give a damn, and one of the reasons they accept me is because I basically don;t give a damn either. I let myself get caught up sometimes in worrying about the future, but the reality is that when I live in the moment, the present, Christ lives in me, and I live by faith and by the “faithfulness of God’s son who loved me and gave himself for me.” Ultimately nothing else matters, nothing period. As a fifteen year old told me last night–“you know River I am always judged, accept you never judge me,” and I don’t. I live in the moment, and I live in Christ.
