" Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4) "
The Apostle Paul, in the verse above, uses a special construction that stresses the fact that the new creation—the man who’s born again—has received "a newness of life." This doesn’t refer to one’s life being refreshed, reworked, reformed or renovated; it describes a new quality of life; a different kind of life—the God-life. It’s an expression that describes a supplanting of the old life (from your earthly parents), with the life in Christ; it’s a new life altogether!

When you were born again, your natural human life was not suspended; it was actually replaced with the life of God. No one can be said to be a Christian until there’s first been a supplanting of the old life with which he was born by his biological parents with the divine life of God. This is the reason we can live supernaturally in the earth (John 10:35), because being born of God, we have His life in us. This is authentic Christianity.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." Being a new creation isn’t just referring to a new life in terms of timing, because it just started, it particularly means a new life in terms of quality and type! You’re a new type of man.

According to the Scriptures, when Jesus died, you died with Him, When He was buried, you were buried with Him; now that He’s resurrected, you’ve also arisen with Him into a newness of life. You’ve been called into a new life of success, glory and excellence. Walk in this consciousness !
