“To live is Christ” means experiencing the fullness of the Spirit, the word of Christ, in us richly. To be Spirit filled is to be full of the message of Christ and his good news. And then allowing the Spirit’s word of Christ to flow out of our lives and out of our mouths to the glory of God and to the edification of the church. Not in spectacular sermons or miraculous linguistic displays. But in the simple, every day, conversations of disciple making.
“To live is Christ” is made possible by the indwelling Holy Spirit. He is the giver of Christ’s peace, love, and joy to all who are in Christ by faith.
