My recent favorite verse is Romans 6:8, "Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him" (ESV).

The death of Christ for someone is so effectual. "...if we have died with Christ, we believe..." If He really died for you, something will happen to you!!

Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep" (John 10:11). And if we have died with Him -- we are the sheep for whom He laid down His life and we believe.

Those who have not died with Christ -- not the sheep He died for -- would not believe. Jesus told the unbelievers, "... but you do not believe because you are not part of my flock" (verse 26).

He continued, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish..." (verses 27-28.) Yes, if we belong to His flock, we have died with Him, "we believe that we will also live with him."

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
