You have Died with Christ and you are now living in New Creation Realities

Died with Christ
Romans 6:5 (Weymouth)
For since we have become one with Him by sharing in His death,
we shall also be one with Him by sharing in His resurrection.
Romans 6:5 (Mirror)
We were like seeds planted together in the same soil,
to be raised up to life together.
If we were included in His death
we are equally included in His resurrection.

Romans 6:6 (Amplified)
We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross
with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument]
of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil,
that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.
Romans 6:6 (Mirror)
We perceive that our old identity was co-crucified
together with Him, this concludes that the vehicle
that accommodated sin in us, was scrapped and
rendered entirely useless. Our slavery to sin has
come to an end.

Romans 6:8 (Weymouth)
But, seeing that we have died with Christ,
we believe that we shall also live with Him;
Romans 6:8 (Mirror)
Faith sees us joined in His death and
alive with Him in His resurrection.

Galatians 2:20 (Amplified)
I have been crucified with Christ [in Him
I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer
I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me;
and the life I now live in the body I live by faith
in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete
trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave
Himself up for me.
Galatians 2:20 (Mirror)
The terms, co-crucified and co-alive defines me now.
Christ in me and I in Him! (John 14:20)
His sacrificial love is evidence of His persuasion
of my righteousness! (He believes in my innocence;
it would be offensive to continue to seek to be justified
by personal effort!)

2 Corinthians 5:14 (Amplified Bible)
For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us,
because we are of the opinion and conviction
that [if] One died for all, then all died;
2 Corinthians 5:14 (Weymouth)
For the love of Christ overmasters us, the conclusion
at which we have arrived being this–
that One having died for all,
His death was their death,
2 Corinthians 5:14 (Young’s Literal Translation)
for the love of the Christ doth constrain us, having judged thus:
that if one for all died, then the whole died,

Colossians 2:20 (Amplified Bible)
If then you have died with Christ to material
ways of looking at things and have escaped from the world’s
crude and elemental notions and teachings of externalism,
why do you live as if you still belong to the world?
[Why do you submit to rules and regulations?–such as]
Colossians 3:1 (Amplified Bible)
IF THEN you have been raised with Christ
[to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead],
aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

Colossians 2:20 (Mirror)
If it is true that you were included in Christ’s death,
then the religious systems of this world with
its rules and regulations no longer applies to you.
What further relevance would there be for you to
continue to live under the influence of man’s doctrines and ideas?
Colossians 3:1 (Mirror)
You are raised together with Christ! Now pursue with persuasion
the consequence of your co-inclusion in Christ.
Relocate yourself mentally! Engage your thoughts with throne room
realities; His resurrection co-raised you to the same position of
authority, seated in the strength of God’s right hand.

Colossians 3:3 (Weymouth)
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:3 (Mirror)
Your union with His death broke the association with that world;
the secret of your life now is the fact that you are wrapped up
with Christ in God. (Occupy your mind with this new order of life;
you have died, your new life is hid in oneness with Christ in God.
The secret of your life is your union with Christ in God.)

New Creation

2 Corinthians 5:17 (Amplified)
(17) Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah)
he is a new creation (a new creature altogether);
the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away.
Behold, the fresh and new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (CJB)
(17) Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah,
he is a new creation –the old has passed;
look, what has come is fresh and new!
——–

Galatians 6:14-15 (Amplified)
(14) But far be it from me to glory [in anything or anyone]
except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)
through Whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world!
(15) For neither is circumcision [now] of any importance,
nor uncircumcision, but [only] a new creation [the result of a
new birth and a new nature in Christ Jesus, the Messiah].
Galatians 6:14-15 (Mirror)
(14) May my boasting be in nothing but in the cross
of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has
been crucified to me and I to the world. The religious-
systems and applause of this world have no appeal to me.
As far as they are concerned, I am like a dead man.
(15) What really matters is not whether you are
circumcised or not, but that you are made a
new person in Christ. (Which is exactly what
the Gospel of faith announces.)

Colossians 3:9-11 (Amplified)
(9) Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped
off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices,
(10) And have clothed yourselves with the new
[spiritual self], which is [ever in the process of being]
renewed and remolded into [fuller and more perfect
knowledge upon] knowledge after the image (the
likeness) of Him Who created it.
(11) [In this new creation all distinctions vanish.]
There is no room for and there can be neither Greek nor Jew,
circumcised nor uncircumcised, [nor difference between nations
whether alien] barbarians or Scythians [who are the most savage
of all], nor slave or free man; but Christ is all and in all
[everything and everywhere, to all men, without distinction of person].
Colossians 3:9-11 (Mirror)
(9) We are no longer obliged to live under the rule of a sinful nature,
neither are we cheating anyone through false pretensions,
(10) but we stand fully identified in the new creation renewed
in knowledge according to the pattern of the exact image of our Creator.
(11) The revelation of Christ in us gives identity to the
individual beyond anything anyone could ever be as a Greek
or a Jew, American or African, foreigner or famous, male or
female, King or pawn. (In seeing Him not just recorded in
history but revealed in us, we discover the face of our birth as
in a mirror!) From now on everyone is defined by Christ; everyone is
represented in Christ.
