But the wisdom of God is far greater than this kind of simple decision making. It’s learning to trust God and love others no matter what chosen consequences we are living in.
“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.
What if the most important decision you face today isn’t what to do, but rather how to do it?
Do you question God’s love for you today? Like the Teacher, are you asking if the suffering that we all face each day is God’s hatred or God’s love?
“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.
