“To live is Christ” means never, ever, ever, decreasing in our need for grace. Why? Because Christ in us is constantly revealing more and more of the dark crevices of our souls, bringing us to a place of wretchedness (Rom. 7:24), and revealing the most dangerous sin of the human heart – self-righteousness.
When you believe that you have freely and graciously been given everything you need for life and godliness by your Savior King you will, quite naturally, be determined to add these gifts on to your life by faith in Christ.
Do you really believe that you have already been given everything you need for life and godliness today, and every day? Or are you still waiting on God to give you more than Jesus’ life? Are you still waiting for God to do more than the cross? More than the resurrection? More than “to live is Christ?”
