Ephesians 2:6 (NLT) – 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 Jesus.
1. What does it mean to be united with Christ Jesus?
2. What area of your life do you feel is beyond God’s control and power?
3. How does being united with Christ address that feeling?
There is a recent area in my life where I began to question if things would ever change. I was stuck in viewing myself as separate from Christ, powerless and change felt impossible. But this truth of being raised with Jesus and exalted with Him in victory over sin has rescued me into faith.
God has joined us to Christ so solidly that what happened to Jesus has also happened to us. His victory is now our victory. His power over sin and death is now our power over sin and death – because we are united with Christ. And this is our present reality!
Father, sometimes this reality feels so different from our daily experience. Help us to live in the amazing truth of the Gospel each day, that You have raised us to life.
Let’s proclaim this reality as we sing “Raised to Life” by Elevation Worship (Click here).
