The believer’s union with Christ.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

One of the most important—yet under-emphasized—doctrines is the believer’s union with Christ in His death and resurrection.

Paul writes in Romans 6: For if we have become united with Christ in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection.

This means that just as Christ died to sin on the cross, believers should consider themselves dead to sin as well.  And just as Christ rose victoriously over sin and death, believers can have the same victory over sin and will be raised from the dead.

This truth is received by faith in the fact of Christ’s work.
