I'm witnessing to a guy and some thoughts came up that bothered me.
When Christ died, how and why did we die?
When He was buried, how were we buried and why were we buried?
When Christ rose from the dead, how and why did we rise from the dead?
When a believer meets Jesus and believes in Him, he automatically is given His faith, therefore is crucified with Christ, buried with Christ and then resurrected in the new life as a new creature just like Christ.
So do other believers.
So what is this spiritual bond that connects us, ties us with and shares in Christ's death, burial and resurrection to bring new life, the new nature and new spirit in believers?
What is this bonding or spiritual binding that Jesus has on all of humanity that when His Father does these things for Him, they happen to us too?
I'm hoping that their might be a knowledgeable answer in terms of understanding spiritual insights to these questions. Looking forward to your answers...
