In other words, if Christ is my life then why am I not like Christ? I am still Dave. Dave
Perhaps you underestimate the depths of what it is to be Dave: the Dave who was crucified with Christ, the Dave whose life is Christ, the Dave who lives because Christ is his life, the Dave who lives by faith in Christ. Are you still Dave? Maybe you, like I, have judged who you are by the Dave who thought his life existed in what he was or what was conferred upon him by flesh and blood. You are not what you were according to the flesh. Instead, you have now been made alive.
...if Christ is my life then why am I not like Christ? Dave
Perhaps you judge "like Christ" by the same old "like Dave" viewpoint. :)
How is Jesus your fulfillment? The life of God joined together with man. Who Jesus Christ is is also who you are. Not a truth to be reasoned but merely understood by knowing that emptiness finds fulfillment in the thing that fills it. You were empty ... but no longer.
