   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. For he that is dead is 
freed from sin (Romans 6:6-7).

The Bible says,  “But God, who is rich in mercy, 
for  his  great  love  wherewith  he  loved  us, 
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us 
together  with  Christ,  (by  grace  ye  are  saved;)  And 
hath raised us up together, and made us sit together 
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”  (Ephesians 2:4-6). 
When  Jesus  died,  we  died  with  Him.  When  He 
was  buried,  we  were  buried  with  Him.  When  God 
raised Him from the dead, we were raised together 
with Him. We were in Him in His death, burial, and 
Romans 4:24-25 says, “But for us also, to whom 
it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised 
up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered 
for  our  offences,  and  was  raised  again  for  our 
justification.” We weren’t justified because He died; 
we  were  justified  because  He  was  raised  from  the 
dead. He was raised from the dead, a new man; He 
was born again. 
Jesus  heads  up  the  new  creation.  He  came  up 
with a new life and so, the Bible says,  “Therefore if 
any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things 
are passed away; behold, all things are become new” 
(2 Corinthians 5:17). This new creation has no past; 
there’s no sin in him. His resurrection gave you a brand 
new life. You’re not the man that sinned; that’s the “old 
man,” and he’s dead. Hallelujah! 
A  new  YOU  was  born  at  the  resurrection: 
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into 
death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead 
by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk 
in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). Blessed be God! 
Blessed  Lord,  thank  you  for  the  life  I’ve  received 
through  the  resurrection  of  Jesus  Christ.  As  Christ 
rose from the dead, I came alive with Him; therefore, 
I walk in this newness of life. I reign and rule in life 
today as a king, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Romans 6:4-5;1 Corinthians 6:9-11
