The death and resurrection of Jesus, isn’t just something that happened to Him. It also happened to you. You died with Jesus and you were buried with Him spiritually – the old you is gone. On top of that, you were raised to life with Christ in His resurrection – the new you has come. That is, the life of Jesus is being lived through you. You have everything He has—love, freedom, righteousness, sonship, inheritance, acceptance, and peace. The Father delights in you just as He delights in Jesus! You have Christ's perfect record so there is nothing you can do to make God love you any more or any less than He already does. Knowing that we died once with Jesus and were raised once with Jesus then becomes the motivation of our choice to daily serve our Savior by faith and love.
