“To live is Christ” is to seek God’s kingdom and to find it in your union with Christ.
“To live is Christ” means going to God as our dad. The good and glorious father who provides, pardons, and protects his children along every step of the Way.
“To live is Christ” gives you everything your heart needs to love. Even those who will never love you back. Even those who persecute you. Even an enemy.
“To live is Christ” means you have been loved by God when you were still the enemy of God. Praise him! Because you are loved by God, your heart has everything it needs to love others, even enemies.
“To live is Christ” is not to find our way to these blessed attributes of Jesus. It is to find them IN Jesus. In Christ we are the poor in Spirit who ARE blessed in him.
“To live is Christ” is life in the kingdom of God that only comes through repentance and belief. And that is good news! No more trying to figure out the Christian life. No more “just tell me what to do.” Instead, just tell me what Christ has already done. That’s all we need to know.
