Life Is Christ

We will not know the truth and power of Christ in us (Colossians 1:27) if we insist upon navigating this world not by the Spirit but by the flesh and the wisdom of this world. Even if we attempt to navigate by loving everyone, we will have chosen a method and a necessarily defined template that excludes the life and grace of Christ Himself. In the great “love chapters” of 1 Corinthians 13 and 1 John 4, the point is that life and love come from God in us, and work out from there. Life is Christ; anything else is something else.


  1. Life is Christ, yes, and God is love. God just keeps hammering it home to me: It's ALL Jesus, and all my efforts to please Him and serve Him and repay Him are used toilet paper! Thank you for speaking the truth in love.

  2. Wow. That's powerfully (and graphically) said, Laura. Thank you!
