Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may live a new life. (Romans 6:4).

Sothe life I now live in the body, I live because of the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). The Spirit of Christ overpowers the old self so we can live a new life.
In fact, our lives become hidden in Christ: “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3, NIV, emphasis added). Our goal is to have more and more of our life hidden in Christ. After all, to become like Christ is now one of our primary objectives in life.

Now that is living a new life!
Today, ask yourself: What signs are in my life that I am a person who is living a new life
