TLIC Daily. Day 188. July 7: Righteousness, Sanctification, and redemption.

“To live is Christ” is unlike any other religion on earth. It is all of Christ and all of his grace. He has freely given us his life and all that comes with it – wisdom, goodness, holiness, freedom. We have been given these things for free in order to freely be these things. Not to earn, not to achieve, not to boast, but to freely reflect the love and grace of God that came down from the mountain top to bring righteousness, sanctification, and redemption to a lost world.

TLIC Daily. Day 183. July 2: Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh.

“To live is Christ” means your old sin nature is dead and gone, and yet the remaining selfish flesh inside of you is still hanging on the cross. Today and every day we must continue crucifying the flesh and its selfish desires. Not by focusing on the desires of the flesh, but by keeping in step with the desires of the Spirit. The desire for Christ and the desires of Christ that now flow out of our grace filled lives as we live by faith.
