“To live is Christ” means being filled with the knowledge of God’s will (Christ-likeness) and being instinctively controlled by the wisdom and understanding of God (Christ himself). That’s faith. That’s our union with Christ.
“To live is Christ” is to live each day in this wisdom, this fear of the Lord, the promise of the rule of Christ. It is to walk fully aware that these days are evil, but that Christ will lead us through by the Spirit. And so we live carefully and yet fully alive. Alive in Christ our Savior and King.
In Christ you already have all of these things. Now will you be wise and let them out? Will you be wise and “to live is Christ?”
Look to your union with Christ and know that you will never be forgotten. Trust the death of Christ with all your heart and know that “to live is Christ.”
“To live is Christ” has transformed our mortality into immortality, and our meaninglessness into ultimate meaning – eternal life, eternal joy, eternal love and goodness.
“To live is Christ” means our life now has ultimate meaning, and that meaning is Jesus Christ and his glory forever displayed in our love.
