Jesus' death saves, but we receive the benefits of His death when we are baptized. 1 Peter. - Baptism also now saves us. Notice Romans ,4. Here is the explanation that ties it all together. We are baptized into Christ, into His death. Baptism (preceded by hearing, etc.) is the act at which we come into contact with or receive the. Christ’s sinless life, selfless sufferings, and death compose his defense in our behalf. We should note by contrast, it is a selfish Satan who dissuades us from calling upon Christ’s merits, wanting us to be declared guilty and face the cold justice of the law.
For life is to be with Christ; where Christ is, there is life, there is the kingdom. By his death and Resurrection, Jesus Christ has "opened" heaven to us. The life of the blessed consists in the full and perfect possession of the fruits of the redemption accomplished by Christ. The challenge is to have faith in His plan even though we don’t have all of the answers. Because we all make mistakes, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, so we can be cleansed and forgiven. When we accept Jesus and follow His example, we become less selfish and can enjoy greater love, peace, and joy.
1. To achieve His own resurrection from the dead. The death of Christ did not merely precede His resurrection–it was the price that obtained it. The Bible says He was raised not just after the blood-shedding, but by it. The wrath of God was satisfied with the suffering and death of Jesus. The holy curse against sin was fully absorbed. The most exciting thing about the Christian life is hope. Not a hope so, guess so, think so, hope. But, an eager expectation (Romans ) for the will of God to be revealed. David expressed this hope after a time of terrible sins in his life: adultery, murder, lying. If he can be restored to joy.

Because he had faithfully run the race set before him (Hebrews ), he knew God would be honored through both his life and his death (Philippians –20). This brings us to Paul’s statement, “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians ). He then says, "These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full" (John ).

Ask yourself, “Am I living a godly life. And because of His immense joy, He sold all that He had so that He could purchase that field. The treasure in the field stands for those in the world who believe in His name.

b) and “Shout for joy to God, all the earth” (Ps. Likewise, in the New Testament, we read that joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal. ), which means that it is a Christian virtue. Right Christian experience is the outworking, whatever our circumstances may be, of the life, nature, and mind of Christ living in us (Philippians11;13).
Philippians reaches its pinnacle at with the glorious and profound declaration regarding the humiliation and exaltation of our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul’s statement in verse 20 leads to the words of ve which is surely Paul’s life motto, and the key to his boundless joy, even in the face of death.

God did it. You were spiritually dead. Christ and his word and his lifestyle and his promises meant very little to you.
You did not love him or trust him or enjoy him. You were dead to all these things. Then one day God called you. And you rose from the dead. And the sprouts of spiritual life broke through the ground and you tasted true faith.
The Christian life is one that is fundamentally rooted in the reality that Jesus Christ is living and active. He interacts with us on a day to day basis and desires that we cultivate an intimate relationship with him.
The more we commune with the Spirit of Christ, the more life and truth we are exposed to and are able to comprehend. Jesus’ strength perfects our joy. The VOICE paraphrase of John reads, “Now I am returning to You. I am speaking this prayer here in the created cosmos alongside friends and foes so that in hearing it they might be consumed with joy.” Biblical joy is the result of a Christ-prioritized life.
Through His incarnation, God was expressed in a man, Jesus Christ, in the flesh. Jesus, who was born in the manger, fully expressed the very God in all His rich being and Person to mankind.

1. The goal of the Christian life is to know Christ. Jesus said the same thing when He prayed, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent” (John ). Christianity is primarily a growing relationship with the infinite God who has revealed Himself through the Lord Jesus Christ.Paul emphasizes that eternal life is not merely something to be earned, but a gift from God, as in Romans "wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans thus also counter-positions sin and eternal life: while sin results in death, those who are "in Christ" will reap eternal life.
