If the part of the dough offered as first fruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches. Romans 11:16 NIV
We know that Christ is the Son of God. Being God the Son, we know that He is holy. He is also the first fruit, the first to be resurrected by the Father. Christ is the root. He is the focal point of our faith. He, it is through whom we have access to the Heavenly Father. We are made righteous, holy, before the Father through the Son. All who belong to Christ are made holy by Him. It is through no action on our part. What we must do is have faith in Christ. We cannot let this world have control over us. We are part of the holy dough. We are branches of the divine root. We must hold on to Christ. He is the only way to the Father and to an eternal inheritance in the kingdom.
