What if the most important decision you face today isn’t what to do, but rather how to do it?
“To live is Christ” means that our faith in the indwelling Lord of glory is transforming us. The indwelling Spirit is conforming us to his likeness.
Before you do anything else behold the mercy of God. And then speak and act like the child of mercy that you are. That’s “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” has filled us with the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. And this glory, when received in faith, will melt away all our partiality, all our favoritism, all our prejudice. And it will leave in its place obedience to the royal law of love. Love for everyone. Which is love for God.
“To live is Christ” has turned all of God’s word into life giving, freedom bringing truth. God’s perfect law is now our liberty. The freedom that comes when our sin is exposed and our new life of love and grace is empowered.
“To live is Christ” means we are the firstfruits of God’s new creation. Christ is the greatest gift that allows us to enjoy all of God’s other gifts.
