The Hope of God with Us
December 6, 2022
Read Romans 6:1-5
So what are we going to say? Should we continue sinning so grace will multiply? 2 Absolutely not! All of us died to sin. How can we still live in it? 3 Or don’t you know that all who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore, we were buried together with him through baptism into his death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too can walk in newness of life. 5 If we were united together in a death like his, we will also be united together in a resurrection like his.

Respond in Prayer: Good and gracious God, we give you thanks for the new life you offer to us moment by moment. For your grace that abounds and never lets us go, thank you. Open us, Lord Jesus, to your will and your ways so new life springs forth. Transform us, personally and communally to be the people you would have us be. Amen.
