Dying and Rising
When we were baptised in Christ Jesus we were baptised in his death …
Really? Yes, real! Jesus became a ‘bread and wine’ person because although life was hard, grinding him like wheat and treading him down like grapes, he still nourished all with whom he came into contact.
Romans says that we are called to enter into this way of life, a death that brings new life over which death will have no power.
So, don’t deny this call by sinking back into excuses provided by culture, family ties, etc. Lose that life for real life.
