Bible Reading: Romans 6:1-14
Therefore, we are buried with him by baptism into death: that 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
To be in Christ means new birth. The old way of life has to pass away. The things of the world, no more pleasure to us. Water baptism signifies been buried and raised with Christ. We now have new life in Christ. We are now expected to walk in the newness of life. Because we have died in Christ, death no longer rules over us. Our life is hidden in Christ Jesus. Therefore, we should consider ourselves dead to sin and alive to God. Sin should no longer reign in our lives. For you to be a new creature, you have to consider yourself dead to sin and alive in Christ. As a result of your new life, sin should not rule over you, because you are under grace. Therefore, believers shouldn’t conduct themselves in a worldly manner with the kind of places they go drinking, and what they wear. If your appearance is like a gang star people will judge you as an irresponsible person.
Prayer Point: Lord I pray that the beauty of Christ will be seen in every area of my life in Jesus name.
