“To live is Christ” means our lives are joined to the conquering, victorious, Savior-King of our souls. Jesus is exactly what we need. He’s not a boost to get us over the hump. He’s our overcomer! Which means winning only comes when we first admit that we are losers. Victory only comes when we are overcome by his grace. And conquering is only by a cross.
December 27, 2020. Day 362: And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.
We can have real joy in the midst of this great battle, for our dwelling is no longer the earth and sea but ours are the heavenly places, for we are seated with Christ at the right hand of God. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! That’s us! That’s “to live is Christ.”
December 21, 2020. Day 356: This is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
“To live is Christ” means we are a part of the greatest conquest of all time – the victory of Christ Jesus over the world.
