Christ died for us on the cross. He was raised from the dead for us at the tomb. When we believed in the Saviour’s death and resurrection, we were dipped into the same scene. Our identity changed. We didn’t feel it, we didn’t see it, we didn’t hear it, but it occurred, nevertheless. When we came to Christ, we were placed into Him as His death became ours, His victorious resurrection became ours, His “awakening” to new life becames our “awakening,” His powerful walk became our powerful walk.
