Why Jesus [Part 4]—Tim Haring

Problem: There is often little difference in the way believers and unbelievers act.
Solution: Because of who we are, it should matter how we live.
Who was Jesus? Jesus was and is:
• God in the flesh
• Our Sovereign Creator
• The Heir of all things
• The One who holds everything together
• The Head of the church
• The Ruler over death
• The Reconciler
What is true about us? We have:
• A new identity
• A new family
• A new eternal destiny
• A new kingdom
• A new beginning
Last week, we explored why Jesus + Nothing = EVERYTHING.
Today's Takeaway: Our new life in Christ involves a death and resurrection.
Our new life in Christ involves a death to certain things and a resurrection to certain things.
"The Greek tense in this command suggests a decisive action, as if Paul said, 'Mortify it! Do it now! Do it resolutely!' Of course, God has already done it, but Christians are to know this, count it to be true, and act accordingly. In other words, they are not to go on living as though they are still alive to sin when in actuality they are not."—Geisler
