YOU ARE NO LONGER RELATED TO SIN.
Dead to Sin, Alive to Christ When we went under water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace - a new life in a new land! That is what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our father so that we can see where we're going in our new grace-sovereign country. That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don't give it the time of day. Don't even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life. Throw yourself wholeheartedly and fulltime - remember, you've been raised from the dead! - into God's way of doing things. Sin can't tell you how to live. After all, you are not living under that old tyranny (the law) any longer. You are living in the freedom of God (Grace). But now that you've found you don't have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put - together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God's gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our master. "Expect new things from God Almighty today. Favour, peace and joy shall be yours today in Jesus name."
