“To live is Christ” means there’s nothing left to earn. Nothing left to do. No performance left to give. No right to make wrong. No guilt to overcome. No history to delete. Nothing to add-on. No more “ands” to get done today. Just Jesus. Just his love and forgiveness. Only true deliverance.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 268. SEPTEMBER 25: WALK AS LIGHT.
“To live is Christ” has made us children of light. We are not light so that we can avoid darkness. We are light so that we can dispel darkness while spreading God’s light. We don’t “hide our light under a bushel.” NO! We walk as children of light.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 214. AUGUST 2: LIGHT OF GLORY.
“To live is Christ” is to have an illuminated heart by this indwelling glory of God. In Christ, we can truly know our God. We can look into his face and not just survive, but truly thrive.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 87. MARCH 28: ARISE, SHINE.
Reflect the light and glory of our Suffering Servant Jesus to all you can in these darkest of times. Pour out his love like a fountain. Forgive. Be patient and long suffering. Listen more than you talk. Show kindness in small ways. Share. Pray. And embrace “to live is Christ.”
An Angelic Advent. Day 10: And the Angel of the Lord said to her, “Behold you are barren, but you shall conceive and bear a son.”
Yes, advents always begin in darkness, but God never lets them stay there. He always shines a light. Samson. Jesus. You. Me. We are the light of God in this world of darkness shining the light of self-sacrifice through the life and light of Christ in us.
TLIC Daily. Day 268. September 25: Walk as children of light.
“To live is Christ” is life lived out as light that first exposes, then makes visible, then transforms into more light. Therefore, we are not light so that we can avoid darkness. We are light so that we can dispel darkness while spreading God’s light. We don’t “hide our light under a bushel.” NO! We walk as children of light.
