“To live is Christ” makes our life an everlasting journey toward greater and greater glory.
“To live is Christ” offers us true meaning. Meaning that comes from sharing the divine nature of the last Adam. We share his life. His good life. Forever.
“To live is Christ” makes you a living apocalypse. We are God’s walking and talking future. Judged. Resurrected. New.
“To live is Christ” is a union with Christ both spiritually and physically. May this hope of the glorious renewal of all things sustain and empower us as we live through days of pain and loss, hopelessness and hurt, until that day when we too will walk out of our graves into the presence of the Son. Until then do not be afraid.
“To live is Christ” means no more fear of dying and no more fear of living. Why? Because my life is no longer being measured. It is no longer the standard by which I will be judged.
God, our place is with you. God return for your people. Come quickly Lord Jesus, amen.
