“To live is Christ” has filled us with the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. And this glory, when received in faith, will melt away all our partiality, all our favoritism, all our prejudice. And it will leave in its place obedience to the royal law of love. Love for everyone. Which is love for God.
You see, your transfiguration into Christ-likeness is not simply about you becoming more morally upright or pious. It’s about the process of dying to your selfishness and resurrecting unto the glory of a grace filled life. It’s about “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” has filled us with the upside down glory of God’s grace and truth. The grace and truth of the glorious cross of Christ.
The search is over. In Jesus we no longer have to settle for lesser glories, because the greatest glory, the glory of the love of the Trinity, is ours in him.
“To live is Christ” is to fear not. It is to be strong. It is to keep working for the Lord is with you. Knowing the latter glory will be greater than the former glory. Forever.
What is man? Who am I? Why would God care about me? Because “to live is Christ.”
