Paul teaches that believers have been buried and raised with Christ so that they might walk in newness of life. This means that believers are to leave their old lives of sin and death behind and live a new life in Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Through Christ's death and resurrection, believers have been made new and are called to live a life of righteousness, obedience to God's word, and love for others. The old has passed away, and the new has come.
