Made New

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

Through Adam, all of mankind was sentenced to death by sin. Through Jesus all who believe on His name have eternal life and the promise of the resurrection through His atonement for the sin of the world.

Like these flowers that only months before were seeds, dormant in the ground, the warmth of the sun and life giving force of the water, came alive. From death to life.

And so will we. Even now, we hold the seed - Jesus Christ - in our hearts that we too will be resurrected into eternal life. We who know the Lord will walk in the River of Life. We will burst forth in life to die no more. 

There is only one way. One God. One Savior. 

Trust in Jesus Christ, the first-born of the dead, by whose blood we are cleansed from all sin and awarded eternal life.

Doesn't get better than that.
