It’s not law keeping to find love, it’s living out of love that has found us. It’s living as the new self. Living in “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” is to seek with all our hearts the love of the Father whose love first sought and found us.
“To live is Christ” has freed us from the system of this world. Our hearts are meant for so much more than such dead religion, such regulation keeping, such “cause-effect” basics.
“To live is Christ” has brought us into a whole new reality where nothing is as it appears. Where the cross of shame is the throne of glory. The criminal is our King who has cancelled every debt and disarmed every enemy. Now nothing stands between us and our God.
When you embrace that fullness and the freedom that comes with it, you might find that you’re finally free to love. You might find that you’re finally free to hope in an eternal kingdom. You might find that you’re finally free “to live is Christ.”
Today will allow the same faith in the same grace that justified to also sanctify you? Today will your life abound in thanksgiving to God for his saving love in Jesus his Son? Today will you “to live is Christ.”
