Principle One: KNOWING GOD’S FACT
You are a New person… Old things have passed away 2 Cor 5:17
“You cannot live and walk in newness of life if you don’t know and realize the facts of the New Creation Reality and your New Identity in Christ”
6 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Romans 6: 1-9 KJV
Without this continuous knowing and realization, we may never experience the delight of living this New Life in Christ!
There are a thousand and one things that have changed, spiritual realities that have become true when we come to Christ!
And they are all revealed in Scriptures. We must seek and search them! We must believe them! and keep knowing it!
Never forget who you have become in Christ! Never forget what has happened at the Cross! Never forget that things are not what they use to be!
You have been baptized into Christ dead… You are dead to sin
You have been raised with Him…so that you can henceforth live in Newness of Life
Halleluyah! Glory to God in the Highest! Sin shall no more have dominion over us!
