Galatians 2:20- NKJV- I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;
By our identification with Christ, we don't mean that we identify ourselves with Him (though in a sense we do), but that God identified us with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection. God saw us crucified when He saw Christ crucified; God saw us raised when Christ was raised. Identification then is first and foremost the was God sees things and not the way we do!
It's great to read something that's both enjoyable and provieds pragmatisdc solutions.
