“The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ transformed the relations of God to mankind, and of Israel
to the Gentiles. In him God reconciled not a nation, but a world to himself. 2 Corinthians 5:19. The
death of the Son of man could not have reference to the sons of Abraham alone. If sin is universal and
death is not a Jewish but a human experience, and if one blood flows in the veins of all our race, then the
death of Jesus Christ was a universal sacrifice; it appeals to every man’s conscience and heart, and puts
away for each the guilt which comes between his soul and God.”

F. Crucified with Christ

1. IN baptism we acknowledge our acceptance of the death of Christ, our representative, as our own
death to sin. Romans 6:1-3; 1 Peter 2:24.

2. This crucifixion of the old nature sets us free from the bondage of sin. Romans 6:6, 7.

3. This crucifixion with Christ is the first and necessary step toward receiving the life of Christ.
Galatians 2:20.

4. This union with Christ in his death puts an end to the fleshly life. Galatians 5:24; Colossians 2:20;
Romans 6:11.

5. This union with Christ in his death involves the putting off of the old man and the putting on of the
new man. Colossians 3:3, 5-11.

6. When we partake of the Lord’s supper, we testify to our acceptance of his death. 1 Corinthians 11:26.
