Part 4 - The Application of Faith
Overview: Reckoning the Separation through the Light of the Gospel
The basic light that God has given is the light of the gospel. Jesus prayed, "Sanctify them by Your truth," making reference to that part of His sanctifying work of bringing the believer into His light. All believers should reckon this basic truth: Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried, and was resurrected, and the believer is united together with Christ in that death and resurrection. The death of Christ on the cross is the death of our old nature that was a slave to sin. One is to reckon and believe the truth of Christ, and this begins with one's deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ.
