“For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.” Romans 6:5 (NIV)
Jesus didn’t just die for you, He also arose from the grave to eternal life for you. Just as at Calvary your sins were forgiven, so at the resurrection your life is made new, forever. You can not duplicate Calvary or resurrection morning through works, but through faith you can believe that His word is true – you are united with your Lord in forgiveness of confessed sins and the new life of His grace.
We really need to talk more from the pulpit about the resurrection promise because that will be the ultimate evidence of our faith in Calvary, if we are not translated with those who are alive at the time of Christ’s return.
Let’s pray today that we may put our faith in believing that His resurrection life is ours, too.
