The dark page has turned. There's hope.
Jesus was dead, but now he's alive.
He overcame death.
God became man and He has saved us.
What shall we say then?
Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ were baptized into His death?
We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father,
we too may live a new life.
For if we have been united with Him in a death like His,
we will certainly also be united with Him in a resurrection like His.
For we know that our old self was crucified with Him
so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,
that we should no longer be slaves to sin -
because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
Now if we died with Christ we believe that
we will also live with Him.
Romans Six: One through Eight.
Here we are, April 8, 2012, and all of that happened those many years ago
and it was planned before time,
May the lamb who was slain
receive in my life today the reward of His sufferings!
If anyone would come after me,
let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.
