“Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the father, so we too may walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4).
Paul frequently employs the term “walk” to express the ethical implications of the Christian life; how we are to live and conduct ourselves. Having been buried with Christ is a passive voiced verbal expression, emphasizing that God is the one seeing this accomplished. Strange isn’t it; that having been buried with Christ, we have never been more alive? If what God has done doesn’t put a spring in your step, I don’t know what will.
