“To live is Christ” is to forever behold the Lamb’s sacrifice for us on the cross. And as we do, our hearts are drawn in love and grace to him while all else slowly fades away.
“To live is Christ” is to live from a deep dependency on God’s provision of a savior. A substitute life. Christ’s life.
We will live every day, forever, with a clear conscience, knowing we are freed from all the guilt of our dead works and freed unto all the true humanity of serving the living God. We will spend every day, forever, in “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means we can trust the gentle and compassionate sin removal process of our Lamb. As we behold the Lamb’s sacrifice for us on the cross, our hearts are drawn in love and grace to him as all else fades away.
Truly “to live is Christ” means becoming what we already are.
“To live is Christ” means there is only one thing we know for sure, and therefore, only one thing we can talk about with confidence – the cross. We don’t need anything beyond the ultimate reality of Christ crucified for us. No more answers. No more knowledge. No more experiences. All we need is to embrace the power of the cross as our power for daily living and loving others.
