TLIC Daily. day 242. August 30: Put to death the deeds of the body.

“To live is Christ” is not the end of morality. It’s the beginning. The indwelling life of Christ has given us the knowledge of good and evil through the shared life of Christ. We have, through grace, what we tried to earn in the Garden through effort. The Garden left humanity with knowledge but no life. In Christ, we have his life and his knowledge. We have his love and we know how to use it. The daily question is “will we?”

TLIC Daily. Day 70. March 11: He does not deal with us according to our sins.

“To live is Christ” means that by faith in the death of Christ every individual sin has been dealt with forever. And by our union with Christ, God’s indwelling infinite love and forgiveness remove the indwelling force of sin in our hearts little by little, as we deal with God, not according to our sins, but according to his grace that has already dealt with all our sins.
