    For my blog I chose Galations 2:20. I choose this because I understand and have studied the law and have a tendency to live under it, but I really want to know at the heart level the fullness of his grace. So here is my verse:

    I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
