I have been crucified with Christ; and 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 up for me.

Galatians 2:20

“Jesus lives in me.”

That is the mindset we should all try to embody as followers of Him. Not because He needs us to behave in a certain way or depends on our belief to continue but because if we wish to be his followers indeed, we must carry out the things that He would have us to do in our lives. We have died but just as Jesus was resurrected, we also have a new, better life in Him.
