Union with Christ is a seal. A possession. An unbreakable presence. God himself is the guarantee of our salvation. Not a creed and not a deed.
“To live is Christ” means we are the purchased, priceless, possession of God – body, soul, and spirit. We are God’s holy dwelling place. Now the question is, will we live out bodily what we are spiritually?
“To live is Christ” means forever living free from the only curse that ever existed. The curse of the law.
“To live is Christ” is “to live is the Trinity.” It is only by the overflowing love of the Trinity for each other that we are loved, saved, and joined by faith into the very life of God.
“To live is Christ” is to receive God’s love. A love that created us and recreates us. A love that overcomes our darkness with light. A love that gives shape and fullness to our otherwise formless and empty lives.
“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. And your son-ship is the truth behind everything that makes life worth living. Intimacy – that’s son-ship. Impact – that’s son-ship. Identity – that’s son-ship. Glory – that’s son-ship. And one day, victory – that’s son-ship!
