"Made to Die, Joined to Another"
“Made to Die, Joined to Another”
As True Believers, we must understand what has taken place in our lives.
If we understand what/who we are, then we will be able to appropriate the Life the Lord has released within us.
Hear the Word of the Lord…
Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.
Several foundational truths here.
We were made to die to the Law.
We are dead to the Law...the Mosaic Law.
We do so through the Body of Christ.
So that we might be joined to another.
Joined to Who?
To Him who was raised from the dead.
There it is.
Jesus was raised from the dead.
We are made to die to the Law and to self.
We are joined to the Lord Jesus...the Body of Christ.
In order that we might bear fruit for God.
This is the basic position of the Believer.
Dead to self.
Alive to Christ.
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
