When we receive the grace found in Jesus, the power that sin had over us is broken. Now we are able to live in a new way. In the same way that death has no power over Jesus, our sin nature now has no power over us. You should become aware of this truth and choose to live in this way. You are no longer condemned to repeat the same mistakes of toxic selfishness. You now have freedom through God’s grace. In water baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a public confession of our faith in Jesus, the fact that we now live for Jesus and that our relationship with sin is dead. Now we may live a new life. It’s a beautiful moment for a spiritual family to come together and support the person who is choosing to follow Jesus. We make a commitment to help each other on this journey.
