Galatians Outline
Galatians 2:20

20 I am 1acrucified with Christ; and it is 2no longer I who live, but it is 3bChrist who lives in me; and the 4life which I now live in the flesh I clive in 5faith, the dfaith 6of the 7Son of God, who 8eloved me and fgave Himself up for me.

202 No longer I does not indicate an exchanged life, a life in which Christ comes in and we go out, for later in this verse Paul said, "I live." As regenerated people, we have both the old "I," which has been crucified (Rom. 6:6), concerning which Paul said, "No longer I," and a new "I," concerning which Paul said, "I live." The old, terminated "I" was without divinity; the new "I" has God as life added to it. The new "I" came into being when the old "I" was resurrected and God was added to it. On the one hand, Paul had been terminated, but on the other hand, a resurrected Paul, one who was regenerated with God as his life, still lived. Furthermore, although Paul said, "No longer I," he also said, "It is Christ who lives in me," for it was Christ who lived, but it was in Paul that He lived. The two, Christ and Paul, had one life and one living.
