When Christ died on our behalf, it was as if we were on the cross, bearing the punishment for our sin. In Christ we died to our old life, but in Christ, the Holy Spirit has taken up residence within us. Now it is no longer we who live, but Christ living in us.
How does the truth of the Gospel change your day-to-day? Are you in any danger of placing your hope in something other than Jesus Christ? This world offers us life that in the end leads to death. Jesus offers us death in Him that will lead us to life. How does the church participate in the life of Christ and also in the death of Christ?
