“To Live is Christ” is a marathon. A grace race that we faithfully run ’til the end. By grace we are in the race, by grace we run the race, and by grace we will finish the race. Will you keep the faith in God’s amazing grace until the final day? I pray you will.
“To live is Christ” is a multiplication project. Multiplying the grace of Christ Jesus into the lives of others through our faithful teaching of the gospel. No one said it would be easy. But the promise of God’s strength through grace will stand forever.
“To live is Christ means that the more we look at his appearing, the more we wait for his glorious return, the more we place our faith in his life rather than our own life, the more we will be transformed into his likeness. Trained up in his godliness. Zealous for his good works. For now we know that we ARE his good work.
But when Grace is the lover of your soul, then you have been taught “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” is to live by grace through faith unto good works. In that order. Any other way is not the life of Christ in us.
“To live is Christ” means that God’s glorious grace is living in us. It is not just an external principle to follow. It is a life to be received. It is everything. Our beginning, middle, and end. Our source and our goal. Our cause and our effect. We have received grace, that we might live from grace, to the praise of grace. God’s glorious grace.
