With Christ

Dead with Christ, therefore:

I. Dead to the Flesh (Gal. 5:24)
II. Dead to Sin (Rom. 6:2, 11)
III. Dead to the Law (Rom. 7:4)
IV. Dead to Religion (Col. 2:20)
V. Dead to the World (Gal. 6:14)

We are dead and buried with Christ that we might be:

I. Quickened with Christ (Eph. 2:1) 
II. Raised with Christ (Col. 2:12)
III. Seated with Christ in heavenly places (Eph. 2:6)

How is this possible? Upon salvation we are baptized by the Spirit into the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13) thereby identifying us with Him. Christ is the Head and we are the members of His spiritual Body.
