Christ came to show us what living truly is.
“To live is Christ” is to receive the life of God in the person of Christ. Life beyond your life. A life that offers you hope beyond your own accomplishments and achievements. A life that offers you love for love’s sake. For God’s sake.
“To live is Christ” means Christ has come into the formlessness and emptiness of our lives. He has come to be the priest of our garden heart. To work and keep it by his life changing love.
“To live is Christ” offers us a new spirit. The Holy Spirit. The indwelling life of Christ. His life in us changing our desires and affections from the inside out.
“To live is Christ” means your life is good. Not easy. Not without trouble and sorrow. But good.
“To live is Christ” is to have the fruitfulness of Christ’s life of love.
