To live is Christ means never being forgotten by God, and always being bountifully supplied by his steadfast love and faithfulness.
“To live is Christ” means we are a part of the greatest conquest of all time – the victory of Christ Jesus over the world.
Now we wait for the rescue. For the great advent. The world around us will shake and crumble. But our Beloved has seen our faith and will come just in time to bring us home to his land, his family, his heart.
The more and more you believe that you have freely and graciously been given everything you need for life and godliness by your Savior King you will, quite naturally, be determined to add these gifts on to your life by faith in Christ.
This Christmas season may we be the sons of Abraham. The children of faith. Faith in all the promises of God. Faith in the return of THE Son. And faith in our union with Christ that sustains us in our waiting by his love.
Don’t desperately search for your love for Christ. Seek first his love for you. Then you might just find that you share that love. You’ll find out that your faith is real. You’ll know that “to live is Christ.”
