“To live is Christ” is to live under the never ending debt of love. The only debt in the world that won’t crush us. The one debt, that when we pay it forward will conform us to Christ.
“To live is Christ” will sacrifice, even the relationship itself if necessary, in order to fight evil. And it will sacrifice its own life to cling to whatever good is there, no matter how small it may be.
“To live is Christ” is to be filled with faith, hope, and love. Hope in the eternal life of Christ. Faith that fully trusts in his eternal life. And love that flows from his life of love in you.
“To live is Christ” means we are filled with love as a state of being. Love is. And love is in us.
How is God teaching us to love? By our union with Christ. By the indwelling Holy Spirit who pours God’s love into our hearts.
“To live is Christ” gives you everything your heart needs to love. Even those who will never love you back. Even those who persecute you. Even an enemy.
