Genesis 2:17. but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
“Living or dying. This is our same choice today. Christ came to show us what living truly is. Not self-determination, but self-sacrifice. Not independence, but dependence upon God’s grace. Not earning a good judgment by our good deeds, but receiving the judgment of Christ’s cross and the justification of his resurrected life. Not by trying to live as Jesus (another form of self-righteousness), but by receiving the love of Jesus. Then allowing Jesus to live out his love through you. That’s “to live is Christ.” ~ Brady Wolcott
