You Died with Christ

25 Apr

When he was crucified all of us were crucified there with him… Must we ask God to crucify us? Never! When Christ was crucified we were crucified; and his crucifixion is past therefore ours cannot be future… That we have died in Christ is not merely a doctrinal position, it is an eternal and indisputable fact.”

The Scripture has never told us that we shed our blood with Christ. In his atoning work before God he acted alone; no other could have a part. But the Lord did not die only to shed his Blood; he died that we might die. He died as our Representative. In his death he included you and me.
