3 He nailed him to the cross, And buried Him with Christ So that you might be free. Paul writes, “Our old self was crucified with
in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin” (Rom. 6:6-7). Is this true? God says it is. Does this mean the old you Is completely dead? Sadly, no. If it was, you wouldn’t have to struggle with sin. But it does mean His power is broken, So that you are no longer a slave to it. You have died to sin. If you died, How can you still be alive? Because He also raised you again to life As a new creature in Christ. Paul writes, “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the
which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Gal. 2:20).
