There’s something deeply broken and flawed within us. We see the stain of sin in the fabric of our souls and our society. This isn’t the way life is meant to be lived. We need a new kind of life. Fortunately, new life is available, but it comes at a cost. Death is the price to be paid. Death is the prerequisite to true life. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, it’s possible to live life the way it was meant to be lived. We can join Jesus in his death and in his new life through baptism. For every person, it’s time to step into or celebrate new life, leaving everything else beneath the water.
