WE ARE SAVED BY HIS LIFE
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life" (Rom. 5:8-10).
Paul was called by the Lord
to be an apostle
on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:3-19). The Holy Spirit revealed
Christ in Paul for three (3) years in the deserts of Arabia (Gal
1:11-12;15-18). This was an entirely new gospel of 100% grace, with
Christ living in the believer in a shared life (Gal. 2:20). Since our
we now are considered a new creation
life, with all
things that have already now become new (II Cor. 5:17).
Christ is now
joined to our Spirit
(I Cor. 6:17) and we are complete in
Him in the Spirit
in all things (Col. 2:10).
The Father was 100% satisfied with Christ's sacrificial offering of His shed blood and body on the cross. The Father raised Him from the dead as a demonstration of His satisfaction and seated Him in His right and authority in Heavenly places (Rom. 4:25; Eph.1:20). Out of His resurrection, we are now raised through the Spirit birthing to live in His resurrection life with a shared life of Christ living in and through us as us. We are justified, redeemed, and reconciled by the death of Christ on the cross. However, we are saved by His life! We are saved by the life of the Lord Jesus Christ now in us as us! What marvelous grace! What a marvelous new life we now have in Christ!V
