If we have claimed the promise in the below Scripture verses, then we are different. We think differently, act differently, and seek a different way of life. Do you see, feel, or know how you are different now? Do others think you have changed for the better since claiming to be a follower of Jesus, the Christ? Do you look for and value different things out of life? A changed way of life, for the better, is a sign that Christ lives within us and that the Holy Spirit has become our guide. May we claim the promise and grow to be more Christlike with each passing day. Amen.
Verses: Romans 6:5-7 (NIV)
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
