I have been crucified with Christ; 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 for me.
Who is Paul referring to that was crucified? He was of course referring to his spirit man, not his soul, nor his body. The disciples in referring to themselves in the first person referred to their spirit man within, the real you. Most Christians are body or soul conscious when talking about themselves, because that is what they are referring to when they say “I”.
You must become spirit conscious if you want to walk by faith in the body you live in, for faith comes from your heart (your spirit man), not your head. You are a spirit, not a body, nor a soul, you have a soul (mind, will, and emotions) and you live in a body, but the real you is a spirit being. Once born again we are to walk by faith not by sight. But if we think of ourselves as a body or a soul and we are not spirit conscious, we will walk by sight and not by faith, missing out on what God wants to do in and through us.
So go to the New Testament and start meditating on the scriptures that reveal the real you, the “new creation” you have become once born again. These are the “in Christ” scriptures just like the one above. This will make you conscious of your spirit man, the new you. As you become more aware of the new man on the inside, it will help you to walk by faith and not by sight.
