Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification (Romans 4:35)

Never forget that this is the most powerful thing about Christianity. As simple as it is, it is so powerful: Jesus Christ was raised for our justification.

Israel was redeemed. When Jesus died, He paid for their sins, He paid for their broken covenant. But we are recreated. Yes, everyone in Christ had to be recreated. You were not redeemed, you were recreated. That means you are not the sinner saved by grace. (Christianity does not begin at the cross. It does not begin at the grave. Christianity starts at the resurrection) When you become a Christian, you receive a new life, the resurrection life. You are a new person as though you have never sinned. You are not a forgiven person; you are a recreated person with a new life. That is what the Bible says.

Christ was born again-He was resurrected-and that is the life. The Bible says when He died, we all died – we ended. He went to hell for every one of us. He settled everything, and came back alive with a new life. This is what we are preaching to every man that if you will believe this, if you will believe the life that Jesus has given you, you will discover that the eternal life in your spirit has supplanted the life with which you were born of your mother and father.

This is Christianity, not a religion. There are so many people who think it is one of the world’s best religions. It is eternal life in a human vessel, a divine life at work in a human person. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever (1 Peter 1:4). And once you are born again, God wants you to live by His Words. Think, talk, and walk His Word.
