“To live is Christ” is to continue to allow the law to reveal your abounding sin, and then to turn to the super-abounding grace of God in Christ. A grace that can never be stopped as it leads us through righteousness and into eternal life.
“To live is Christ” means we are justified by God’s grace. Which in turn means we have peace with God, access into grace, the hope of glory, and even joy in suffering.
“To live is Christ” is the constant realization that I never did earn it, I never will earn it, and I am not currently earning it. My sin is too massive. But praise God, his grace is more massive.
“To live is Christ” means we are justified by God’s grace. No more guilt (victimizers) and no more shame (victims). Christ’s imputed righteousness has made us whole.
“To live is Christ” means that you have been given the righteousness of Christ. His holiness. His standing. His acceptance. His perfection. His belonging. His worthiness. Now our weakness is no longer shaming.
“To live is Christ” means admitting weakness. And it means receiving grace. A grace that allows us to boast in our weakness that we may learn to love with all the love of the cross.
