A Core Truth of the Christian Life

I’m leading a class that is studying the Book of Romans in our Wednesday Workshops.  Tonight we begin a close look at Romans 6.  This chapter presents one core truth and some corollary truths.  The core truth is stated several times, but most clearly in verse 5:  For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection…  (NKJV).  Those who have been justified by faith in Jesus Christ are joined together with Him, specifically in His death and resurrection.  This is a spiritual reality that has the greatest of implications for our lives.  Because we have been joined to Christ, we have the ability and motivation to live righteously.  I’m thrilled to renew my understanding of our union with Christ as I study today, and looking forward to sharing it in our workshop tonight.
