Today's Devotion

» Devotion - July 22, 2014

Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Romans 6:1b-11


Sometimes we hear that we are forgiven and we still feel bad. When I was little and that happened to me, my dad would say, “Remember your baptism.” But I couldn’t remember it. When I got older, I realized that Dad meant, “Remember that you are baptized.”   

Baptism is not just simple water. It is water used by God’s command and connected to God’s Word. Baptism has great power. When people are baptized according to the command of God, they are connected to Christ. So what is true of Jesus Christ is also true of baptized people.

Jesus died on the cross, taking the punishment for the sins of the world. Baptized people have their sins forgiven through faith in Jesus. They can count themselves dead to sin.

Jesus rose from the dead. Transcending time, God sees that baptized people have already risen from the dead. Baptized people live new lives in Christ. Their sins are forgiven and their deeds of love are the way that God works in the world. Baptized people can count themselves alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Prayer: 

Dear Lord, when I hear that I am forgiven and I still feel bad, remind me that I am baptized, and keep me close to Jesus. Amen.
