Today's Verse: Romans 6:5 (KJV)

Friday, June 5, 2020

For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.
— Romans 6:5 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

So, here's the great news: if we have died with Christ, we've already died the only death that really matters. Our lives are joined with his and so we will share in his glory when he returns (Colossians 3:1-4). Even death cannot separate us from his presence in our lives (Romans 8:35-39) because we have been given the victory over death through Christ Jesus our Lord (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). We do not have to fear the second death (Revelation 2:11, 20:6, 14, 21:8) because we have already passed over from death into life (John 5:24).

My Prayer...

Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God — through Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen. (Romans 7:24-25)
