“To live is Christ” makes us the desired, wanted, adopted sons of God. Whether you are a man or a woman, if you are in Christ you are a son. An heir. A co-heir with Christ.
“To live is Christ” means embracing your adoption and learning to cry to your Abba. To live all of life from his delight in you, and your dependence on him. Knowing that you have the unchanging, unending, love of your heavenly dad. The love of a son. The love of the Son, Jesus himself.
“To live is Christ” gives you everything your heart needs to love. Even those who will never love you back. Even those who persecute you. Even an enemy.
“To live is Christ” means we have no “daddy issues.” The Father is speaking to our hearts today what he spoke over Jesus in the water that day, “You are the son, you are the daughter, who pleases me, and I will love you forever.” May the Father’s delight in us produce the same grace and truth that guided the life of the Son, as we live joined to his God pleasing life.
