Why would anyone who died with Christ to man-centered and effort-based religion live as if the cross didn’t free them at all?
We are free in Christ because of our identification with Him. Sin ultimately has no power over us.
We must live in Christ. We are made complete in Him and have victory and freedom in Him.
Whatever we experience or understand in this life only has meaning to the extent it is experienced or understood in Christ.
As gospel believers, we share in Christ’s suffering and know Him better as a result.
Justification is the single most incredible gift ever given or received.
