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. (Romans 6:3 ESV)
Hymn ELH 248:1,6 Now Christ, the Sinless Son of God
Now Christ, the sinless Son of God,
On sinners sends this saving flood;
This is the water which the Lord
Has joined unto His saving Word.
Since by this water and the Word
We’re born again, we thank You, Lord.
Through life and death Yours may we be,
Your children through eternity.
Heavenly Father, in baptism You give new life and forgiveness of all sins. Thank you for giving so great a gift to me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
