Romans 6:5

For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

 

Just as we have been united with Christ in the likeness of His death, we have been united with Him in the likeness of His resurrection. The words “the likeness of His death” refers to the believer being put under the water in baptism. The actual union with Christ took place nearly two thousand years ago, but baptism is a “likeness” of what happened then. We not only go under the water, we come up out of the water, in the likeness of His resurrection.
