Today's Verse : Romans 6:3


June 3, 2012

Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ
Jesus were baptized into his death?
-- Romans 6:3

More than an outward symbol, baptism is coming to the core of
the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and sharing in it by grace
(Romans 6:1-15). What an incredible blessing to be able to do what
Jesus did at the beginning of his ministry to please God (Luke
3:21-22), and also know that through our faith in God's power to
raise him from the dead, our lives can be joined with his until we
can share fully in his glory! (Colossians 2:12; 3:1-4).

Loving Father, thank you for your grace. Thank you for raising
Jesus from death. Thank you for letting me share in that
resurrection through faith. Thank you for the assurance I have of
sharing in his glory. Thank you for letting me be your beloved
child, with whom you are well pleased. Thank you in Jesus' name.
