Raised To Newness Of Life
Being baptized into His death, means that we are to be identified with all that He is, just as He became identified with all that we are. He identified with our sin so that we could be identified with His righteousness.
Being identified with His death on the Cross and His glorious Resurrection means that we are to die to self. We are to die to all that we are in our old, pre-salvation days. It means to put off the old sin nature and cease from any fleshly strivings we undertake to 'please' God.
But it also means that we are to be raised to newness of life (the new, born-again life in Christ). We are to keep the old 'ME' nailed to the Cross and allow the new 'ME' (the new life in Christ) to abide in Him, rest in Him, be nourished by Him, and depend upon Him in all things.
There must be death to self, death to sin, death to legalistic tendencies, death to all that is not of Christ, so that we may live as God intended us to live - in complete dependence upon Him, by grace through faith.
Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus dying on the Cross so that we may be forgiven of our sins. Thank You for identifying with our unrighteousness so that we may be identified with Your righteousness. And thank You for identifying with our deaths so that we may be identified with Your life, our new lives in Christ. Help us to keep all that is not of You nailed to the Cross, and we pray that we may live godly in Christ Jesus, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name we Pray, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
