A Voice from the Past - Calvin

Our salvation may be thus divided between the death and resurrection of Christ: by the former, sin was abolished and death annihilated; by the latter, righteousness was restored and life revived, the power and efficacy of the former being still bestowed upon us by means of the latter.

John Calvin, 1509-1564, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book 2, Chapter XVI, 13, (translated by Henry Beveridge, Wm B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1973, Vol. 1, p. 447).

How do the death and resurrection of Christ accomplish our salvation? How does this change how we live our life?
