To Live Is Christ

"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."
- Philippians 1:21 -

The believer did not always live to Christ.

He began to do so when God the Holy Spirit convinced him of sin, and when by grace he was brought to see the dying Savior making a propitiation for his guilt.

From the moment of the new birth the man begins to live to Christ.

He is willing to part with all that he has.

The Lord Jesus Christ has completely won his love.

To His glory he would live.

In defense of His gospel he would die.

Paul's words mean more than most men think.

They imply that the aim and end of his life was Christ.

His life was for Jesus.

Jesus was his very breath, the soul of his soul, the heart of his heart, the life of his life.

Can we honestly say that for us to live is Christ?

Many carry out this principle in some measure.

But how many dare to say that he has lived wholly for Christ as the apostle did?

Yet, this alone is the true life of a Christian.

Let us present ourselves to our Lord Jesus Christ, to live only in Him and to Him.
