“To live is Christ” means no more fear of dying and no more fear of living. Why? Because my life is no longer being measured. It is no longer the standard by which I will be judged.
Because we have been given everything by Christ, now we can give everything through Christ. We can live his sacrificial life. We can live without fear of any loss, for everything is ours in him.
When we can truly embrace the glory of dying, and fully trust that in the presence of Christ Jesus is the center of all that our hearts have always wanted – all love, joy, and peace. If and when we believe all of this more and more with all of our hearts, then we will be ready to live. We will be ready to embrace “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means no more fear of dying and no more fear of living.
