When we are freed by the love of God for us so that we can fearlessly ask to be exposed by God. Now we are ready to live. Now “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” frees us from having to follow our hearts. Now we can follow Jesus into the heart of God.
God knows you’re his child. He knows you’re righteous. He knows you’re alive in Christ. He knows the real you, and loves you anyway. So go live your life boldly before him. Because “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” is to allow the gospel, the word of Christ, to live in your heart house. To give the Spirit control of every thought, decision, and motivation. To trust Jesus with every part of your life. And to give him more and more access as you explore the treasures of scripture more and more, allowing God to love you as you meet him in his word.
“To live is Christ” is to be so enthralled with Christ that all obedience flows from this new affection. Not law. Just love. Love that comes from knowing that we are loved first and forever.
“To live is Christ” is to have an illuminated heart by the indwelling glory of God. In Christ, we can truly know our God.
