Ephesians 2:6 – For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ (NLT).
Paul included you in his writing when he used the word us, so make it personal today. There are 3 phrases from this verse that you need a revelation of. (I’m going to take them one day at a time.)
First, you were raised from the dead along with Christ. You might be thinking, “How could I have been raised from the dead if I have always been alive?” That’s easy. He took you along with Him.
The moment you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your old self was crucified with Him. Your sinful nature joined Christ in death, and your spirit was given new life through His resurrection. You could say it like this: At salvation, you experienced both a funeral and a resurrection.
Live in the reality of the resurrection. Jesus did not face death head-on and overcome it, so you could remain dead in sin. Embrace your new life in Him today.
