Victory in rebirth

To be able to share in the victory that Jesus brought for us we must have our 'old man', that in Adam is, being killed and become an entire 'new man' in Christ.

Jezus describes this as 'rebirth', for no other image will in state to describe sufficiently this radical renewal .  And that rebirth is something that we our selfs shall have to bring till position.  In such a way we may count for it on Christ' help: we our self are  the only ones that can take this decision, and take action to fulfil it.  From now on our fight against the sin is against the temptation back now to turn till our old man.  Only when we persevere the victory has been promised, because the sin is robbed of its power.  And then is there also no power in the world, of whichever nature, that  would be able to separate us of Christ, and for which we thus yet would have to need fear.
