To live is Christ is to face every difficulty and every distress from within God’s glory shield of our eternal victory in Jesus.
We can have real joy in the midst of this great battle, for our dwelling is no longer the earth and sea but ours are the heavenly places, for we are seated with Christ at the right hand of God. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! That’s us! That’s “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” means we are a part of the greatest conquest of all time – the victory of Christ Jesus over the world.
“To live is Christ” has brought us into a whole new reality where nothing is as it appears. Where the cross of shame is the throne of glory. The criminal is our King who has cancelled every debt and disarmed every enemy. Now nothing stands between us and our God.
“To live is Christ” means you have already won. So stand. Stand and look out over your victory in Jesus. Stand in God’s armor knowing that his promises are true and his love for you is never failing. You can live in victory today. Stop fighting for it and stand upon it instead.
“To live is Christ” is to know that we have the victory. We ARE already conquerors because God has promised that one day we WILL BE conquerors.
