On this special day, I’d like to share a brief vision I had a number of years ago, that ties in with and illustrates the message of Romans chapter 6.
In it Jesus was hanging on the cross. I ran over to him and embraced him as he hung there.
A voice behind me said, “You want to identify with this disgrace? Fine.”
A long metal spike was hammered into my back, piercing through my heart, through Christ’s body and into the cross, pinning me there, and we both died.
I woke up in the tomb next to Him, He helped me to my feet and we walked into the sunshine together.
He turned to me and smiled. “You have died with me, you have been raised with me. Now live like it.”
