TALK: Consider some of these ideas
“For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will
certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.”
Does baptism make a difference? Why or why not? Is it
transformational or merely symbolic? Explain.
What does it mean to you that you are dead to sin? How does
living as a child of God affect the way you behave in the world?
For the littles: If you could take a walk with Jesus, would you
take him to the park, around a lake, up a mountain, through the
city, or through the desert? Why?
PRAY: O God, your costly grace is no excuse for dwelling in sin.
Therefore, strengthen us to do what is favorable in your sight, for the
benefit of your kingdom’s growth. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
BLESS: May God grant you forgiveness and grace. Amen.
