When you remember to trust what God is doing IN YOU right now, by his grace, even when it looks like you’re moving backwards, then you will begin to enjoy the confident assurance of God’s salvation in you. The assurance of “to live is Christ.”
God knows you’re his child. He knows you’re righteous. He knows you’re alive in Christ. He knows the real you, and loves you anyway. So go live your life boldly before him. Because “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.
