“To live is Christ” means we have no “daddy issues.” The Father is speaking to our hearts today what he spoke over Jesus in the water that day, “You are the son, you are the daughter, who pleases me, and I will love you forever.” May the Father’s delight in us produce the same grace and truth that guided the life of the Son, as we live joined to his God pleasing life.
“To live is Christ” means we can trust the gentle and compassionate sin removal process of our Lamb. As we behold the Lamb’s sacrifice for us on the cross, our hearts are drawn in love and grace to him as all else fades away.
“To live is Christ” gives us a whole new operating system of grace. Will we boot up the old deadly system of law keeping today, or will we trust the power and ease of use of living from the indwelling life of the eternal Son of God?
“To live is Christ” has filled us with the upside down glory of God’s grace and truth. The grace and truth of the glorious cross of Christ. Where dying is living, and losing is winning.
In “to live is Christ” we have not only seen the glory of God, but we have received the glory of God (John 1:12), his life of grace and truth, into our own lives. The search is over. In Jesus we no longer have to settle for lesser glories, because the greatest glory, the glory of the love of the Trinity, is ours in him.
“To live is Christ.” The end of all our confusion. The answer to all our questions. The fulfillment of God with us.
