5 Atonement and the Cross of Christ Our Goal {181} As you study the meaning of Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice, be moved toward a greater commitment to the One who suffered so much for you, so that whether you live or die, you can do so in peace.

7 United to Christ Key Text 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

8 United to Christ Initial Words {337} Adam, through his sin, initiated a humanity separated from God. Christ came in union with God, died for our sins, and instituted a new humanity, one in union with God free from the enslaving powers of sin and death. We are by nature part of the old humanity but become members of the new humanity through faith in Him. Thus, we begin a new life in union with Jesus and His church.

9 United to Christ Quick Look 1. Adam: Old Humanity (Romans 5:19a) 2. Christ: New Humanity (Romans 5:19b) 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church (Romans 8:9)

10 United to Christ 1. Adam: Old Humanity Romans 5:19a NKJV “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.”

11 1. Adam: Old Humanity Separated {327} 1. Son of God Luke 3:38 2. Was disobedient Rom 5:19 3. Introduced sin Rom 5:12 4. Introduced reign of death Rom 5: His descendants are sinners Rom 5:19 6. Brought condemnation Rom 5: In him all die 1 Cor 15:21

12 The fall of Adam resulted in his spiritual death and separation from God. All of his descendants found themselves in the same situation as Adam, unable to overcome sin and death. Humans are, by natural birth, part of the humanity that belongs to Adam, a sinful humanity separated from God. 1. Adam: Old Humanity Separated {327}

13 United to Christ 2. Christ: New Humanity Romans 5:19a NKJV “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.”

14 2. Christ: New Humanity Reconciliation {327} 1. Son of God Luke 3:22 2. Was obedient Rom 5:19 3. Brought grace for all Rom 5: Made possible the reign of life Rom 5:17 5. Through Him many will be made righteous Rom 5:19 6. Brought justification Rom 5:18 7. In Him all will be made alive 1 Cor 15:21

15 The work of redemption is essentially one of re-creation. It begins with the creation of a new humanity. This new humanity was initiated by Christ, in whom the divine and the human were permanently united. The new humanity is, therefore, the participation of humans in the humanity inaugurated by Christ. 2. Christ: New Humanity Reconciliation {329}

16 United to Christ 3. In Christ: The Spirit and the Church Romans 8:9 NKJV “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now, if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

17 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church Incorporation into Christ {331} Our incorporation by faith into Christ expresses itself in baptism. 1. It is a public declaration that the death of Christ was our death and that through His resurrection we are part of a new creation. 2. Through baptism we joined Him in His sacrificial death, thus establishing a permanent relationship with Him.

18 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church Incorporation into Christ {331} 3. “Baptized into Christ” means that we died “with Christ” and that we were made alive “with Christ.” Our death to sin and our new life take place only in union with Christ. 4. Our incorporation in the resurrection of Christ means that He has become our only Lord; that sin no longer rules in us. This is possible through the power of the Holy Spirit received at our baptism.

19 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church Spirit and Christ {335} To be in union with Christ is synonymous with being in the Spirit. The Spirit and Christ are not being equated. Union with Christ is union with the Spirit. The gifts that are ours in Christ are also said to be in the Spirit. For instance we are justified and sanctified by the Spirit (1 Cor 6:11).

20 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church Spirit and Christ {327} How does one become part of the new humanity instituted by God through Christ? There’s only one way, and that is through the new birth. The new humanity is formed by those who were born from above and not from the flesh (John 3:3, 5, 6). These are those who saw in Christ God’s only means of salvation.

21 3. In Christ: the Spirit and the Church Spirit and Christ {335} It’s also crucial to remember that union with Christ through baptism cannot be separated from union to the body of Christ, the church. To be baptized into Christ is at the same time to be “baptized by one Spirit into one body”—namely, the church (1 Cor 12:13 NIV).

22 Testimonies 5:48, 49 Final Words {337} “Are you in Christ? Not if you do not acknowledge yourself erring, helpless, condemned sinners. Not if you are exalting and glorifying self. If there is any good in you, it is wholly attributable to the mercy of a compassionate Saviour.

23 Testimonies 5:48, 49 Final Words {337} Your birth, your reputation, your wealth, your talents, your virtues, your piety, your philanthropy, or anything else in you or connected with you, will not form a bond of union between your soul and Christ. Your connection with the church … will be of no avail unless you believe in Christ. … You must rely wholly upon His saving grace.”
