As a result, we can now produce a harvest of good deeds for God. How is all this done? By the one who did it all. He came and lived and died, was raised and ascended on behalf of all humanity. He came in love. And in perfect righteousness, he defeated death, sin in the grave, and drag all of humanity with him into resurrection life. So Paul says, Here, you died in Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead, and you were raised with him? Did you hear that?

You are now able to be and to do, the things you were created to do, and the person you were created to be.
