For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. Romans 6:5, 6
Living a NEW LIFE in Christ, is certainly filled with all manner of things that will EASILY beset us in our LIVING for Him. We will become frustrated, lonely, uncertain, and maybe a little scared, but NOT to FEAR, because we are in the MASTER’S, BIG, CAPABLE, STRONG and INVINCIBLE HANDS. And we can feel SAFE and SECURE as we walk this very TROUBLESOME PATH to our Heavenly Home, Heaven.
But before you can have that SAFETY and SECURITY of the Almighty God, you MUST do a couple of VERY IMPORTANT things. First, you MUST DIE to your OLD SIN-FILLED LIFE. To do this you must be CRUCIFIED with Christ Jesus, which means that you DIE or TURN FROM your OLD, SIN-FILLED LIFE, and come to Jesus with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then the Holy Spirit of the LIVING GOD, will RAISE you up from your OLD LIFE to a NEW LIFE in Christ Jesus, this is being RESURRECTED from the OLD LIFE to a NEW LIFE with Christ Jesus, who DIED for YOU and was RESURRECTED from the DEAD and RAISED to LIFE, and is in Heaven with His Father.
When a person comes to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING their sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL their HEART that Jesus died for THEM, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for them, then ACCEPTING God’s gift of SALVATION, then they have been UNITED with Christ Jesus in His DEATH and UNITED with Him in His RESURRECTION. If you have NOT done the above, you are RISKING your ETERNITY to an ETERNITY in HELL, the place of UNENDING pain, heartache, agony, torment, torture, and despair. So come to God following the above procedure, and be UNITED with Christ Jesus in both His DEATH and RESURRECTION. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
