Verse of the Day (December 9, 2019) #BMSeminary – The uniqueness of the Christian experience results from the union of Christ and the believer. This is expressed in Scripture as Christ being in the believer and the believer in Christ. Ten times Paul uses the Greek preposition sun (“together”) to describe this relationship. Believers were crucified (Gal. 2:20), dead (Col. 2:20), buried (Rom. 6:4), quickened or made alive (Eph. 2:1–5; Col. 2:13), raised (Eph. 2:6; Col. 3:1), seated (Eph. 2:6), and glorified (Rom. 8:17) together with Christ. Illustration: Jesus used the image of the vine and its branches to describe His union with the believer. Application: On the basis of this union, the apostle Paul showed how the successful Christian life can be opened with four key words in Romans 6: know (v. 6), reckon (v. 11), yield (v. 13), and obey (v. 17). The Christian can conquer sin because Christ lives in him (Gal. 2:20). (First Reference, John 7:37, 38; Primary Reference, John 15:1–5; cf. 1 John 5:13.) (KJV Study Bible)
