Elyse Fitzpatrick on Our Union with Christ

“Our sanctification is rooted in our union with Christ–how can we truly change if we aren’t already truly different?  How can we fight to win if he hasn’t already fought and won?  How can we conquer death and sin if he isn’t the resurrected One, who lives within us?  Indeed [quoting Calvin], ‘the moment we turn aside from Christ in the slightest degree, salvation which rests entirely on him gradually disappears,’ and discouragement and condemnation will rule our hearts.”
