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- Romans 6:6
When we see pictures of Jesus on the cross, what comes to mind? When you look at Christ on the cross, you should see yourself also. Because Jesus didn’t die for his sins or actions, because he is holy. Christ died for your sins. All of our sins and transgressions has put Jesus on the cross. See when you see Christ on the cross, you should see yourself.
But because Jesus tasted death for us, we are no longer slaves to sin and death. See your old self died on that cross, and when Jesus was resurrected, you were resurrected also. This is why we live and die with Christ. We died with him on the cross and we also rose with him from the tomb. Its through Christ we have victory!
So knowing this, we can only live holy lives. Since you were baptized by the Holy Spirit and raised from the dead, you can’t go back to your old self. The wages of sin are death, and Jesus took the death for you. Therefore you must live a holy life, worth pleasing to your Heavenly Father. So when you see a cross, remember you have already died on it and have been delivered from its wrath through Christ in Jesus Name Amen
