“To live is Christ” means God has poured his unconditional and eternal love into our hearts by pouring Christ’s sacrificial life into our hearts.
“To live is Christ” has made the impossible unconditional love of neighbor possible.
“To live is Christ” is to receive God’s love. A love that created us and recreates us. A love that overcomes our darkness with light. A love that gives shape and fullness to our otherwise formless and empty lives.
From God’s perfect love may we see love perfected in us. May we love sacrificially without fear. May we love humbly yet boldly. May we love because we are loved. May we “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” is to know you are loved by Love. And then it is to love. To love one another freely and fully as those in whom God’s love is being perfected IN US as we learn more and more each day to trust his love FOR US.
When you believe that you have freely and graciously been given “everything for life” by your Savior King you will, quite naturally, be determined to add these gifts on to your life by faith in Christ.
