“To live is Christ” has brought us into a whole new reality where nothing is as it appears. Where the cross of shame is the throne of glory. The criminal is our King. The King who has cancelled every debt and disarmed every enemy. Now nothing stands between us and our God.
When you embrace that fullness and the freedom that comes with it, you might find that you’re finally free to love. You might find that you’re finally free to hope in an eternal kingdom. You might find that you’re finally free “to live is Christ.”
Will today be the day you walk in the Christ that you once freely received? Today will the same faith in the same grace that justified you be allowed to sanctify you? Today will your life abound in thanksgiving to God for his saving love in Jesus his Son? Today will you “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” is to live in this firmness of faith. Faith in Christ’s work for us that will produce his work in us until the day of its completion.
“To live is Christ” joins our lives to his in perfect harmony with all creation and our Creator.
“To live is Christ” is to be this image of the Image. The receiver and reflector of the grace, power, love, and wisdom of God that is Christ Jesus our Lord.
