“To live is Christ” is to swallow evil. No more running. No more hiding. No more revenge. Because death, evil, and suffering can no longer defeat us, we can now face them with the resurrection power of Christ. Transforming them into his life and love, his goodness and service.
“To live is Christ” is not a promise that God will prevent evil in our lives. But it is a promise that God will weave that evil into something beautiful in you. And that beauty is Christ himself.
