Life’s New Page

From Romans 6:6:  “We know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.”

Today’s world fills with darkness

Hiding earth’s moral decay

Needing to live as Christ lived

Removing evil, God’s way


Dying and rising in Christ

Baptized into Jesus’ death

Raised up like Him from the dead

Walk in newness of life’s breath


Sinful nature saved through Christ

Vanquished through body and blood

Walking away from the flesh

Carried far from sin’s sour flood


Following our Savior’s love

No longer walking in sin

Past selves redeemed at the Cross

Chains of sin’s power grow thin


Like wearing a worn-out shoe

Dark, sinful life doesn’t fit

Living as new creations

Trusting Christ, His love acquits

From Colossians 3:1-2:  “So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
