Subject: May 14th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. Romans 5.10.

The death and the resurrection of Christ give us new life. Just as He died for us, so He was also raised for us (Rom. 4.25). Even as we need His death, so we also need His resurrection. The absence of either one of these will reduce the gospel to vanity. Through the death of the Lord Jesus we are delivered from all which belongs to Adam–that is to say, to the natural. By His resurrection we can enter into all which belongs to Christ–that is to say, to the supernatural. His death delivers us from the position and experience of a sinner in order that we may no longer be sinners. His resurrection makes us righteous, obtaining the position and experience of the righteous. "Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new" (2 Cor. 5.17).
