In Christ we not only have the written word, we have the life giving power of the Living Word.
“To live is Christ” is to be hope realized. We are what Israel waited 400 years to be – the treasured possession of the Lord.
“To live is Christ” is to fear not. It is to be strong. It is to keep working for the Lord is with you. Knowing the latter glory will be greater than the former glory. Forever.
“To live is Christ” means your filth is gone. Your garments are pure. The stain of sin is removed forever. Christ’s turban of our shared holiness is on his head. Satan is silenced. And all because of our union with Christ on that single day.
Jesus has turned the day of the Lord, and therefore every day of our lives, from reeling into rejoicing. This rejoicing is “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means we are the righteous who are alive by faith in Christ, and are now living out that faithfulness of Christ. No matter what.
