To live is Christ moves us from wicked, to poor, to rescued. How? By the gracious salvation of the Lord through Jesus Christ. May we remember our place and recount the praises of God today in the gates of Zion.
Has our enemy surrounded you? Has he besieged your hope, slowly starving it to death? Maybe try a prayer of faith like Hezekiah’s.
“To live is Christ” is our living hope. May all lesser hopes point our hearts to the ultimate hope of our future with Jesus, and with the Father. With the eternal love and glory of the Trinity. And may our living hope change how we live today. Free from manufacturing a dying hope from the present moment. And free to live our sorrowful today as if it is our glorious tomorrow.
How do you live when your conscience is finally clear? Faith, hope, and love. Unwavering hope in eternal life earned for us by Christ, and given to us in Christ. Fully assured faith ever drawing us toward our faithful God with all confidence. And thoughtful love that purposefully moves us toward each other in courage and kindness. This is the guilt free life. This is Christ’s church. This is “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means this life changing faith is possible. The God of hope wants you to abound in hope. He wants you to experience joy and peace. And so do I. What’s stopping you?
“To live is Christ” is to be filled with faith, hope, and love. Hope in the eternal life of Christ. Faith that fully trusts in his eternal life. And love that flows from his life of love in you.
