Vigil Readings

We know that our old self was crucified with him...
“Are you aware?” Paul repeatedly draws our attention to something of which we should be keenly conscious — our sinful nature inherited at our birth was crucified with Christ. We've been included in Christ’s death in order to live in him. Paul insists on our mindfulness of this understanding before moving forward: We cannot live as our old selves. We’re not the same. We can no longer live like we did yesterday; it's a new start. Christ’s victory is our victory. We’re no longer mired in sin. It has no power over us. In sharing Christ’s suffering and death, we share in his resurrection and glorify.
Merciful Savior, lead me as I go forth to live in newness of life!
