Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Just as Jesus died to sin, we also died to sin through our faith as we were baptized. Paul said it this way in the verse before our verse of the day: The death [Jesus] died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God (Romans 6:10). Simply putting aside sin at our baptism isn't going to keep sin away from us. We must embrace Jesus' new resurrected life every day. We should begin each day committed to living for God with our hearts open to the Lord's exciting will for us. Let's keep what is dead and buried from our past in the past. Let's live passionately for God, focused on Jesus and his future for us.

My Prayer...

Sovereign Lord and Loving Father, I want my past life of sin to remain buried and dead in the past. Please empower me to have a vibrant life full of your Spirit and always open to your leading in this new life. Please make your presence and will plain to me as I commit myself to living your will. In Jesus' name, I ask this. Amen.
