[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him, because we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, will not die again. Death no longer rules over him. For the death he died, he died to sin once for all time; but the life he lives, he lives to God. So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”
Thank you Father for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, that by his death and resurrection I can have a new life. Thank you that I don’t have to do anything to earn it. You have done it all! In Jesus’ name, amen.
