And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was. We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him. We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God. So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
-Rom 6:4b-11 NLT
Without the Resurrection of Christ, nothing matters! It was when Christ ROSE from the grave that He became the FIRST born of the resurrected. He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. (Col 1:18)
Leader, Jesus SET THE WAY. Because HE ROSE, WE RISE and because He lives- our judgment will be for rewards and for our inheritance, based on what we did once He Rose in our life!
