Brunner: nothing for us

Monday, March 1, 2021
    Feast of David, Bishop of Menevia, Patron of Wales, c.601
    Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
    —Romans 6:8-10 (NIV)
    The death of Jesus Christ is for us nothing if we have not died with him; the resurrection of our Lord is for us nothing if we have not been raised with him.
    ... Emil Brunner (1889-1966), I Believe in the Living God: sermons on the Apostles’ Creed, Westminster Press, 1960, p. 103 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 6:3-10; Ps. 16:9-11; John 14:19; 2 Cor. 4:10-11; 2 Tim. 2:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot live any more for sin.
