Today, Sunday February 7
In Romans 6 we are introduced to three words that are the key to having a strong and abiding foundation that will support our daily Christian experience and let us enjoy the freedom of living a victorious life! The three words are “know” (vs. 3, 6 ,9, 16); “reckon” (v. 11); and the word “yield” (vs. 13, 16, 19).
Before we can reckon or yield, we need to know some things about the reality of our spiritual position in Christ! Satan, the thief, wants to keep us in the dark when it comes to these great spiritual truths and this is why many believers are living beneath their privileged station. In John 10:10, Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
We need to know the truth of our identification with Christ. In verse 3 we read, “Don’t you know, that as many of us were baptized into Jesus Christ we were baptized into His death?” Not only did Christ die for us, but we died with Him. At salvation the Holy Spirit baptized us into the body of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 12:10). And the spiritual reality is, that everything that happened to Jesus Christ - His death, His burial and His resurrection - also happened to us.
Please take the time to contemplate and meditate on this great truth and ask the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual eyes to believe and see, so that you might experience the reality of it in your own life personally!
