Todd Wilson on Galatians 2:20

I just got my copy of Todd Wilson, Galatians: Gospel-Rooted Living (PTW; Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2013). It is a great volume, a wonderful exposition, neither overly technical, nor a light weight in its handling of the text. I wrote a blurb for the volume:

Todd Wilson has written deeply pastoral and theologically competent commentary on Galatians that is an exemplary effort at biblical exposition. There are some doozey passages in Galatians, especially on the Law, and Wilson provides a plain explanation of what is going on and then shows readers how these texts relate to modern Christian living. A wonderful synergy of homiletical energy and honest exegesis.

I loved this quote about Galatians 2:20:

If we truly wrap our life around the life of Christ, if Jesus truly lives within us, then the Christ who is in us will do what Christ did in his earthly life: he loved others and gave himself for others. So, too, this life in us will cause us to do the same. Cruciformity is, then, conformity to the self-giving action of the Son of God. What shape did Jesus’ own loving and giving take? It took on the shape of the cross. That’s where he demonstrated his love for us and gave himself for us.
