Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

When we show the fruits of the Spirit and live according to God's will, Christ is alive in us. Through Him we are able to show love, compassion and mercy to all Creation.
