A NEW YOU
Knowing this, that our old man is
crucified with him, that the body of sin
might be destroyed, that henceforth we
should not serve sin. For he that is dead is
freed from sin (Romans 6:6-7).

The Bible says, “But God, who is rich in mercy,
for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us
together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And
hath raised us up together, and made us sit together
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4-6).
When Jesus died, we died with Him. When He
was buried, we were buried with Him. When God
raised Him from the dead, we were raised together
with Him. We were in Him in His death, burial, and
Romans 4:24-25 says, “But for us also, to whom
it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised
up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered
for our offences, and was raised again for our
justification.” We weren’t justified because He died;
we were justified because He was raised from the
dead. He was raised from the dead, a new man; He
was born again.
Jesus heads up the new creation. He came up
with a new life and so, the Bible says, “Therefore if
any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold, all things are become new”
(2 Corinthians 5:17). This new creation has no past;
there’s no sin in him. His resurrection gave you a brand
new life. You’re not the man that sinned; that’s the “old
man,” and he’s dead. Hallelujah!
A new YOU was born at the resurrection:
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into
death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead
by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk
in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). Blessed be God!
Blessed Lord, thank you for the life I’ve received
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As Christ
rose from the dead, I came alive with Him; therefore,
I walk in this newness of life. I reign and rule in life
today as a king, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Romans 6:4-5;1 Corinthians 6:9-11
