You were set free from the tyranny of Sin, and became the bondservants of Righteousness" (Rom. 6:18 Wey.).
The principle underlying resurrection life is, of all things, death. "For since we have become one with Him by sharing in His death, we shall also be one with Him by sharing in His resurrection. Surrender your very selves to God as living men who have risen from the dead" (Rom. 6:5, 13, Wey.). Let the facts of your position overwhelm the feelings of your condition.
"By exercising faith in the Word, apart from any feelings, be planted together with Him in the likeness of His death' (Rom. 6:5). Only by thus standing in your position will you begin to experience the likeness of His resurrection.' Reckon on your life-union with Him. Reject the old life on the basis of your death in Christ on the Cross, and count yourself alive in Him until He makes experiential your resurrection position. Do not forget that you must stand firmly upon the specific truths: dead indeed unto sin - alive unto God in Christ Jesus' (Rom. 6:11).
"The sharing of His life is our blessed experience just in the measure in which we share His death. So many of us are content merely that the Cross should be the power to save us from the penalty of sin, but death was not the end of the manifestation of Christ. It was resurrection, and it is the risen life, shining forth in the believer, that alone can carry out the purpose of God in redemption. The believer, in whose daily attitude the mark of resurrection is seen, becomes what the world is looking for, a convincing witness to the power of the Living Redeemer." -G.W.
"That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection" (Phil. 3:10).
