When we think of Jesus, we think of Him dying on the cross for our ultimate salvation. When we are born again, we carry our own cross and the old self is crucified. Jesus died conquered the grave and took away our sins. We are no longer slaves to sin. He died so we can live for Him.
For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. Romans 6:6-7 NIV
Jesus is our direct link to God. Rejoice! We are dead to sin and alive to God through our faith in the Lord. Let your faith rise for Jesus has saved us.
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:11 NIV
