RISEN IN CHRIST, THROUGH FAITH.January 15, 2019
Daily Prayer for January 15th, 2019 ¬†
Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank You! :o)
Thank you for the gift of grace. I gladly received it with thanksgiving. I have been made righteous through the blood of Your son, therefore I am now dead to the law, and risen with Christ. I have no desire to steal, but love to give. I do not want to cheat, I‚Äôd rather be true. I like to make peace and not war, help, and not turn away.¬†Obedience leads to righteousness.¬†Holy Spirit, let me never obey sin and its passions. Full of Your mercy…all I want to do is love, and walk in newness of life; through faith in¬†Your son, Jesus. <3
Galatians 2:20¬†English Standard Version (ESV)
20¬†I have been¬†crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives¬†in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,¬†who loved me and¬†gave himself for me.
Romans 6:4¬†English Standard Version (ESV)
4¬†We were¬†buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as¬†Christ was raised from the dead by¬†the glory of the Father, we too might walk in¬†newness of life.
Romans 6¬†English Standard Version (ESV)
Dead to Sin, Alive to God
6¬†What shall we say then?¬†Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?¬†2¬†By no means! How can¬†we who died to sin still live in it?¬†3¬†Do you not know that all of us¬†who have been baptized¬†into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?¬†4¬†We were¬†buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as¬†Christ was raised from the dead by¬†the glory of the Father, we too might walk in¬†newness of life.
5¬†For¬†if we have been united with him in¬†a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.¬†6¬†We know that¬†our old self was crucified with him in order that¬†the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.¬†7¬†For¬†one who has died¬†has been set free from sin.¬†8¬†Now¬†if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.¬†9¬†We know that¬†Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again;¬†death no longer has dominion over him.¬†10¬†For the death he died he died to sin,¬†once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.¬†11¬†So you also must consider yourselves¬†dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12¬†Let not¬†sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.¬†13¬†Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but¬†present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.¬†14¬†For¬†sin¬†will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Slaves to Righteousness
15¬†What then?¬†Are we to sin¬†because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!¬†16¬†Do you not know that if you present yourselves¬†to anyone as obedient slaves,[c]¬†you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?¬†17¬†But¬†thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the¬†standard of teaching to which you were committed,¬†18¬†and,¬†having been set free from sin,¬†have become slaves of righteousness.¬†19¬†I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For¬†just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members¬†as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.
20¬†For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.¬†21¬†But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things¬†of which you are now ashamed?¬†For the end of those things is death.¬†22¬†But now that you¬†have been set free from sin and¬†have become slaves of God,¬†the fruit you get leads to sanctification and¬†its end, eternal life.¬†23¬†For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Colossians 2:12¬†English Standard Version (ESV)
12¬†having been buried with him in baptism, in which¬†you were also raised with him through faith in¬†the powerful working of God,¬†who raised him from the dead.
