Baptized Into Jesus Christ
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? – Romans 6:3
How many of you believe that the baptism this is referring to is water baptism? That is an outward expression of an inward transformation.
We were baptized into Jesus Christ and into His death the moment we accepted Christ.
Baptism does not get you into Heaven. Only accepting Christ will (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10).
Once we accept Christ, we are in Christ. Jesus didn’t just die for us. He died as us. Therefore we have been crucified with Christ. We have been buried with Christ. We have been raised up with Christ. We ascended with Christ. We are now at the right hand of the Father with Christ. That is our position.
Many Christians want to stay in the grave. They want to stay dead with Christ, but Christ isn’t dead. He is alive and so are we. As He is, so are we in this world.
When we inject Christ into our grave situations, our dead circumstances, our graves become full of grace, the Person of our Lord Jesus Christ.
