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:
We have been “justified by His blood…saved from the wrath of God through Him” (NASB).
Romans 6 is how Christ did it:
“We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might (habitually) live and behave in NEWNESS of life” (AMPC).
Romans 7 is the purpose for what Christ did:
“But now we have been released from the law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in NEWNESS of the Spirit…” (NASB).
