Our old man in Adam was crucified with Christ on the cross. We now have a new man that is inseparable from Christ. He lives in us and we in Him. We were chosen in Him, we died with Him, we were buried with Him, we rose with Him, we live in Him, and one day He is coming back to take us to be with Him forever. Hallelujah!
The implication of this truth on our lives is enormous. It will affect how we view God’s acceptance of us; we will know more victories in our battle against sin; our joy will be less disturbed by our circumstances; and finally, our love for and communion with Christ will be deepened. May the Holy Spirit apply this truth to our hearts daily.
