About The Road to Union Series
The new creation exists in union with Jesus and the Father—a fact. Yet the road to union isn't based on attainment, but revelation and realization.
Romans 5 is what Christ did. Romans 6 is how Christ did it.
Romans 6:3-4a, 5-6a NLT
Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined Him in His death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism.
Since we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be raised to life as He was. We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.
HOW Christ did it: by His own death. He took my ‘old self’ in Himself to the grave, and then my ‘new self’ with Him to the heavens.
