In this episode, we continue to discuss the topic of our union with Christ. In Hebrews 2:8-11, we are going to see that this union has tremendous ramifications for us. By placing our faith in Christ, we become one with Him, sharing in His death and resurrection. All our sins were put to death on the cross and, when He was raised from the dead, we were raised along with Him. Just as He enjoyed new life, so do we. We have been raised to walk in newness of life. And our union with Christ also results in our sanctification. As the author of Hebrews would have us remember: “he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source.” Jesus was set apart by God and given a specific role to play. And the same is true of us. We too have been set apart and deemed holy by God. We are one with Christ. And we share in all that is His – both in this life and in the one to come.
