For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
Jesus' act on the cross and hos resurrection was complete and cannot be replicated.
Done so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.
If we are alive to sin we are dead to God. Christ brought us out of that. He brought us from our leaning away from God.
If we are dead to righteousness then even our good deeds are corrupted.
Baptism happens to a person who trusts in Christ.
We are joined with Christ in his death and resurrection. Christs' action took those who believe in with him through death and resurrection. He brought us to life.
Jesus is alive and so are all who believe in him.
We need to remember this and live to it.
