“To live is Christ” is bold belonging. It is undeserved acceptance. And there’s nothing better in this world than that.
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.”
“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.
Speak and act like the child of mercy that you are. That’s “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means that now Christ’s loving anger is fueling our love for others. Even our Ninevehs.
“To live is Christ” means that now this mercy, this life, this hope, lives in us. Christ’s life in us is the great faithfulness of God. Christ’s indwelling love is the mercy we receive afresh each day.
