“For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.” – Romans 6:4b NLT
We have a new life, but what will help us live it? The power given to us by Jesus Christ.
In this letter, Paul lays out what this power does for us.
We have the power to engage
- Our new selves
- Sin no longer has power
- Death is defeated
- Our true selves
- Our Father in heaven
- Jesus’s resurrection renewed our relationship with God
- Others around us
- We are God’s ambassadors
- We speak for Christ
Because of the resurrection, we are renewed and empowered.
Jesus Is Alive!
