Thankfully, in Christ, we are safe from our sins and the consequence of death. Because Jesus died, each of us come with a new life as a new person with new desires for the things of God, free from the penalty and power of sin. Because Jesus rose, we live spiritually alive and will one day rise physically from death, like Jesus to be with him and like him for ever.
