Dearly Beloved in Christ:

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. – Romans 6:5

The love of God enables all to have a new life. A life where we have the right fellowship with Him. A life where we do not have to fear death (Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life. John 5:24 NRSV.)

But to be united in a resurrection like his, we first need to be united in a death like his. For many people, they celebrate Easter by going back to the way they did things before Lent. They return to their old habits. But to enjoy the right relationship with God and to be united with him in
a resurrection like his, we need to be united with him in a death like his.

A death like his, a death where we do what God wants us to do all the time. A death like his, where we do not seek to glorify ourselves,but we seek to glorify God. A death like his, where we love others, and are willing to help and take care of others.
Though Jesus, we can be united with God and enjoy a resurrection
like his, but first we need to be united with him in a death like his.
