we once were dead but now we live

"knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. for he who is dead is freed from sin." (romans 6:6,7)


"therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death; that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. for if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection." (Roman 6:4,5)

"i am crucifued with Christ; nevertheless i live; yet not i, but Christ lives in me; and the life which i now live in the flesh i live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." (Colossians 2:20)

it was a wonderful morning seeing my two youngest daughters publicly announce their faith in Jesus as they were baptized in water, representing the death of their old self;  then raised from the water, representing their resurrected new life in Christ!

we once were dead but now we live!!

My kids have yet to be baptized because I want them to understand why they are doing it and not just because everyone else is wanting to. I think my son is right there so it could be soon.

Thanks for sharing this, it's so encouraging to see :)
