“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.
“To live is Christ” means we are justified by God’s grace. Which in turn means we have peace with God, access into grace, the hope of glory, and even joy in suffering.
“To live is Christ” is the constant realization that I never did earn it, I never will earn it, and I am not currently earning it. My sin is too massive. But praise God, his grace is more massive.
“To live is Christ” means we are justified by God’s grace. No more guilt (victimizers) and no more shame (victims). Christ’s imputed righteousness has made us whole.
