To live is Christ is to trust the pattern of God’s sanctification grace. Through flood and through fire, but never alone. Into abundance, but never by our own doing. Christ is always with us. He knows the way through the sea. Fix your eyes on him and simply follow.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 351. DECEMBER 17: BLAMELESS.
“To live is Christ” allows us to live this blameless life. No more blame means no more blame shifting. No more excuses or cover ups. Just perfect love allowing us to both take responsibility for our lives, and, at the same time to turn our lives over to Jesus.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 325. NOVEMBER 21: SANCTIFIED.
“To live is Christ” is to live from our full and free sanctification in Jesus, by Jesus, and for Jesus. Because we have been sanctified, we are being sanctified. Our consecration is now our response to our sanctification in Christ. Never the other way around.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 311. NOVEMBER 7: TRAINING US.
“To live is Christ means that the more we look at his appearing, the more we wait for his glorious return, the more we place our faith in his life rather than our own life, the more we will be transformed into his likeness.
TLIC DAILY. DAY 293. OCTOBER 20: PUT OFF.
Does all this sound like the same old rule following to you? It’s not. It’s the opposite. It’s not law keeping to find love, it’s living out of love that has found us. It’s living as the new self. Living in “to live is Christ.”
TLIC DAILY. DAY 291. OCTOBER 18: IF…YOU DIED.
“To live is Christ” has freed us from the system of this world. Our hearts are meant for so much more than such dead religion, such regulation keeping, such “cause-effect” basics. In fact, we have died to all these. And now we are alive to dwell within the wild and wonderful love of God. A love that is a law to itself. A law that is a life that has been hidden with Christ in God.
