Daily Inspiration- Romans 6:3-11

St. Paul invites us to understand the Sacrament of Baptism as the entry point into the death and resurrection of Jesus. As we celebrate the Easter mysteries, let us hear this call to enter fully into the Easter experience of Jesus, namely His death and resurrection. This is an invitation to die to sin through the death of Jesus and then to rise with Him in His resurrection to new life. This is what the Sacrament of Baptism is. We have died to sin with Jesus on the cross but it does not end with the death of sin. We then move into receiving the gift of new life from Him as He is raised from the dead by the glory of His Father.

Romans 6:3-11
3 Brothers and sisters: Are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life. 5 For if we have grown into union with him through a death like his, we shall also be united with him in the resurrection. 6 We know that our old self was crucified with him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin. 7 For a dead person has been absolved from sin. 8 If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. 9 We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over him. 10 As to his death, he died to sin once and for all; as to his life, he lives for God. 11 Consequently, you too must think of yourselves as being dead to sin and living for God in Christ Jesus. http://www.kerygmafamily.com
