For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
9We Have Died To Sin! Now Walk in Newness of Life As Christ rose from the grave, so we rise from baptism to walk in newness of life.We are now a new creation in Christ –2 Corinthians 5: So if any man is in Christ, he is in a new world: the old things have come to an end; they have truly become new.
