We were therefore burited with thim through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. ~Romans 6:4~

My Child,

>When you come to my Son, lay down your old life at the tomb. If you don't let it die, how can Jesus resurrect it? How can he give you a new identity if your old one is still alive and kicking? How can he set your wrong priorities right if you still have them clutched in your heart?

Whatever you refuse to bring to the tomb hasn't died, and it still has a stake in your life. It will hold you back and keep you struggling. If you want to be a new creation, you're going to have to lay everything down next to Jesus through prayer and repentance. Let the old man die with my Son through his sacrifice. Then embrace the amazing new life he will pour out in you.

Your Redeemer,
