“To live is Christ” is to have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, ministering the death and resurrection of Christ to my life. To be filled with the Spirit is to be filled with the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now the finished work of Christ is the ongoing work of the Spirit in us. By the Spirit, Christ’s death IS our life. And our dying is now our living.
