You have been raised with Christ to walk in newness of life!  Not to re-live the old life!  Not to follow the old ways!  Not to serve sin!  But rather to live the life He has given us which makes us conquer sin, death, darkness and demonic powers.  The death and resurrection of Christ accomplished this victory we have entered.  This is our new reality!  This is the newness of life in which we walk.  This is why the Risen One has come to live in us!

“Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life” Romans 6:4 (NASB).
