We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Romans 6:4 NIV
DADs, the apostle Paul informs us in Romans 6:6:
"Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."
In other words when we were submerged in the waters of baptism,
"our old man was crucified with Christ, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.”
Once this has occurred, "just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life" (verse 4).
DADs, every Christian, then, is a new man, no longer living the old life of sin and slavish obedience to human nature. Paul says later in the chapter that, "having been set free from sin, [we] became slaves of righteousness" (verse 18).
Does this mean our temptations and sometimes falling short of the glory of God is over? No. Like the prodigal son, because we are “with Him” we also know where to come home when we stray or become distracted.
A home that is full of forgiveness and unconditional love.
“With Him" DADs we have been reMade through His death and resurrection.
“With Him" in both His death and resurrection Paul writes in Galatians 2:20 one of my favorite verses: "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”
