"Newness of life"

Romans 6:4 (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.

I was thinking about my new brother and sister in Christ that were baptized into Christ in the past month or so. It really struck me that they now walk in newness of life. Their past is forgiven and forgotten by our Heavenly Father. They literally have new lives.

What is newness of life? The old life is gone and new one has begun. It's no longer walking in the world, but walking in the light. It is a spiritual resurrection from the deadness of sin. It is being set free from the old life and embracing the new.

Whether we were baptized into Christ yesterday or however many years ago let us always remember that the life we have now is new. We are no longer subject to the old ways, we can and must walk in newness of life. We as adopted children must now obey our Heavenly Father , not the father of lies.

So today, lets remember whose we are and live for him.
