Romans 6, 3-11

The Word of God

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin. For whoever has died is freed from sin. But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death he died, he died to sin, once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus

    • This day can be a ‘freeing from sin’ day. Between Friday of death and Sunday of resurrection, there is the day of allowing the dead self be raised to new life. What is it in my life I would like to see ‘raised’? Maybe intolerance of others, boredom with prayer, carelessness about the poor? Ask sincerely at prayer for what you really want to be ‘raised up’ from.

    • Tonight we reaffirm our ancient faith: Christ has robbed death of its ultimate sting, and has given a new savour to this sweet, precious, precarious, once-only life that is slipping away from us with every hour and day and year. When we smell the crisp evening air, and see the days lengthen and the nights shorten, when we catch the sweet smells of spring and feel the sun on our back and the sap rising, we have hints of a day that knows no ending, a spring that knows no fall, a light that will not yield to darkness, and a life in these weary bodies that even creeping death will not be able to frustrate or despoil.
