To live is Christ is to live in the open, shouting for joy over God’s covenant love for us in Christ. Never hiding FROM God, but rather hiding IN him.
TLIC Psalms. February 28. Forgiven.
To live is Christ is to live within the blessing of the full and free forgiveness of Christ’s cross
TLIC DAILY. DAY 323. NOVEMBER 19: THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD.
“To live is Christ” means no more sin management. No more wondering if we’re forgiven. No more keeping an account with God, because he does not keep an account with us. Once for all forgiveness! Every sin put away. There is no greater gift. There is no greater love.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 228. AUGUST 16: JUSTIFIED BY GRACE.
“To live is Christ” means we are justified by God’s grace. No more guilt (victimizers) and no more shame (victims). Christ’s imputed righteousness has made us whole.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 223. AUGUST 11: A GODLY GRIEF.
“To live is Christ” does not mean that we won’t sin (obviously). But it does mean that when we sin, and when we are confronted, we have a chance to respond with godly grief.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 160. JUNE 9: REFRESHING.
“To live is Christ” is worth repenting for. Turning to God through faith in Jesus is the wisest choice a person could ever make. Only union with Christ offers this beautiful triple blessing – sins blotted out, the refreshing presence of God, and the restoration of all things. You won’t find these three graces anywhere else. So stop searching and simply turn back to Jesus.
