To live is Christ has made you an agent of this same mercy amongst the poor, the weak, the sick, the oppressed, the sinful that you rub shoulders with every week.
TLIC Psalms. February 24. By Your Favor.
To live is Christ is to need it all and to have it all at the same time. To need all help by mercy and to have all prosperity by grace (favor). May our God-given glory never be silent, in this life or the next.
TLIC Psalms. February 20. Due Reward.
To live is Christ is to live deep within both the forgiving grace and the restoring justice of Christ’s cross. It is a refusal to accept injustice and a desire to see the purifying judgment of Christ cleanse this world of all evil.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 334. NOVEMBER 30: RECEIVED MERCY.
“To live is Christ” is bold belonging. It is undeserved acceptance. And there’s nothing better in this world than that.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 249. SEPTEMBER 6: MIND RENEWAL.
Now our union with Christ, and his love, allows us to renew our minds day after day. Slowly but surely pursuing a deeper affection for Christ and his saints. Presenting ourselves as living sacrifices of love and mercy. This is the will of God. This is “to live is Christ.”
TLIC DAILY. DAY 229. AUGUST 17: JUSTIFIES THE UNGODLY.
“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 sins are too many. But praise God, his mercy is more.
