Dying To Live
Hey hey!! My name’s Emma Freeland, and I am so PUMPED to be running for representative! I live in Knoxville, Tennessee with my amazing parents and three of the coolest older siblings ever. Chipotle ranks among my top favorite things to eat, and a fun fact about me is that I’ve visited 16 foreign countries in a little over 4 years! I would love to get to know more about you, so come find me at National Convention and let’s be friends:) TeenPact has blessed my life for 5 years now, and I would be a completely different person without it.
I’m running with the message DYING TO LIVE, which comes from Galatians 2:20. It says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It’s no longer I who live, but Christ who lives within me.” In this chapter of Galatians, Paul is emphasizing how we are not made righteous by the world, but by the selfless act of Jesus dying on the cross. We can only live for heaven if we die to self while on earth. It means we no longer live for our wants and desires, but we are living for a King who was crucified so that we might be saved through Him. Paul was DYING TO LIVE. Like Paul, I encourage us to die to ourselves so we are no longer living for the world, but for the Savior who died for us.
