Christ our life (2)
"If Christ is to be our life, we must first look at Christ as our example. When I speak of Christ as my life, it must not be a vague generalization. Life always works itself out in conduct and action; if Christ comes into me as my life, He must not be hidden in my heart, but a presence that proves himself in every action and in every moment of my existence. If I want to know how it will be, what my attitudes and words and actions and habits will be if I have Christ’s life, I must study the life of the Lord Jesus on earth. As I study the life and walk of God’s beloved Son, I must remember that one of the reasons God sent Jesus to live on the earth was so that I might have a picture, a revelation, a representation of what God wanted me to be and was willing to make me. That is the light in which we should study the life of Christ in the Gospels—not the only light, but perhaps the most important light."
