Romans 6:1-4 NIV
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 Jesus 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.
Through his death and resurrection, Christ has brought us into new life! Let’s not look back to our old life that leads to death, but embrace this new way of living.
Father, open us to the transforming power of your Spirit today!
