“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4)
A Christian is already living in Resurrected Life NOW.
We are not talking of physical life here. This is about our spiritual life.
This is what it means when a person must be “born again”. Born a second time.
A true Christian is living what is actually an Imputed Life.
Which can only be true if God has declared us to be both Crucified and Risen. We can only be risen with Christ if we have already been crucified, dead, and buried.
