Paul says, “it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me”. Heavy stuff. Living and working according to church laws don’t guarantee salvation either. It is through faith this happens. When Christ is at the core of our being, we reach our full potential as humans and when we acknowledge this, our actions become Christ’s actions in the world. We don’t need to work at them. Any attempts to work at them become an expression of what Thomas Merton refers to as our “false self”. This is not to say that we remain passive in the world. It simply means to believe that Christ is at the center of our life leaving us with the responsibility of listening and following His lead.
