“To live is Christ” means that Jesus has replaced your broken cistern of deadly water with his indwelling river of living water. Jesus, the spring of water welling up to eternal life (John 4:14), is IN YOU. No more digging holes to satisfy your desires. No more searching for satisfaction. Just drinking from his ever present stream of thirst quenching love.
“To live is Christ” means that by our co-crucifixion with Jesus every individual sin has been dealt with forever. And by our co-resurrection with Jesus God’s indwelling infinite love and forgiveness remove the indwelling sin in our hearts as we deal with God according to his grace that has already dealt with all our sins.
Union with Christ has made Jesus the king of our hearts and the heart of the King has become the heart of his people.
