May 3, 2020. Day 124: Blessed are.

“To live is Christ” is not to find our way to these blessed attributes of Jesus. It is to find them IN Jesus. In Christ we are the poor in Spirit who ARE blessed in him. Blessed through the repentance and faith that places us into the kingdom of God as citizens of heaven, and co-heirs with Christ.

March 2, 2020. Day 62: Blessed is the man.

This is the message of the psalms, this is the wisdom of God, this is “to live is Christ” – Blessed are all who take refuge in him. Will you take your refuge in the unconditional love and grace of the blessed man, Jesus the Christ? Will you walk with him? Stand with him? Sit with him? Will you be planted in his salvation? Or will you be a wicked fool today, relying on your own righteousness?

February 7, 2020. Day 38: The Lord bless you and keep you.

“To live is Christ” is the realization of the priestly blessing of God. God’s face shining upon us is the face of Christ shining in our hearts (2 Cor. 4:6). God’s countenance turned toward us bringing the fear melting power of his peace. Not a peace that’s found in the temporal blessings of this earth, but the peace that passes all our human understanding and grows through all eternity. The eternally satisfying blessing of God’s presence now placed in us in the indwelling life of Christ.
