Baptized

Romans 6:3-4 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 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. #Bible

I don’t spend much time thinking that I was baptized into Jesus death, and what that means, I confess I should.
It is important to remember that in dying with Christ Jesus, the power that sustains our life is no longer our flesh, but the omnipotent power of God through Jesus the Christ.
So that our growth from our baptism into the death of Christ and His resurrection by the power of God would spring us Christians forth to the next state of existence, the Heavenly Jerusalem where we will rule and reign With Christ Jesus.
So be willing to have your minds renewed continually, being clothed in Christ, living in the new life powered through the Holly Spirit we continue towards our Heavenly call.
If we turn from sin Holiness awaits.
