Jesus. When Jesus died and rose from the dead he freed us from the slavery of selfishness and sin. His death gives us the strength to die to our sinful desires. Through baptism we are united to Jesus who died “once and for all” so there would be victory over sin. His death and resurrection gives us the power to break with sin and live a Christian life. Baptism is the sacrament in which we are united to the saving power of Jesus. We are given new life.
STUDY QUESTIONS: (Limit response to one page per question). What does “in newness of life” mean to us? How is baptism like the death and resurrection of Jesus? What is the baptized child’s new purpose in life?
