God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Paul declared that we can’t continue in sin because we have died to it. This is a positional truth. When Jesus died to sin, He died as our Representative. He died not only as our Substitute, for us or in our place, but as our Representative, as us. Therefore, when He died, we died. All those who are in Christ are seen by God as having died to sin. This does not mean that we are sinless, but that we identify with Christ’s death.
