"You are . . . ."

"Because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption." 1 Corinthians 1:30

"One always dies too soon, or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are your life, and nothing else." Jean-Paul Sartre, "No Exit"

Which we are? United with Christ, who is for us everything desirable? Or our own lives and selves, with nothing else?

Because of God and his grace, we are inside the life of Someone Else.
