May 9, 2020. Day 130: Born again.

“To live is Christ” means that we have been much more than “born again.” We have been born from above. God’s life our life. Christ’s eternal love and holiness ours in him. God’s Spirit in us as the person of Jesus Christ. This is the glory that all of scripture and every promise of God has brought us to see- Christ on a cross, lifted up for us, so that his eternal life may be ours in him.

January 30, 2020. Day 30: If you will obey.

“To live is Christ” is to have everything God offered his people through the law, but to have it through Christ. Now we are God’s treasured possession. We are owned by God. We are empowered by God as his priests. And we are transformed by God as his holy ones. May we now proclaim the excellencies of him who called out of darkness and into his marvelous light.
