If “to live is Christ,” then to live is to live the crucified life. A life made possible by our death with Jesus that has ended all striving, all earning, and all performing. And when all of that SELF is stripped away, now you can truly find your life in losing it.
“To live is Christ” means that nothing can separate us from God. In Christ even sin can’t move us away from God, only deeper into the grace of God’s cleansing forgiveness. And in his love every sorrow is a movement deeper into the fellowship of the suffering of Christ. Into deeper satisfaction.
