I was preparing for my Romans class reading up on the 6th chapter (even though my turn will not come till July). What Paul wrote to the people in Rome speaks to us even today - the resurrection of Christ and life in him.

Following up on my previous posts and discussion with Doug, it is important to realise that sometimes we do really spend too much attention on the cross without equal emphasis on the empty tomb.

Paul in Romans 6 speaks of the death and the resurrection many times over; emphasising that while we died with him we shall also live with him.

This is the good news of God. Not only has he sent his one and only Son to die for us but raised him from the dead so that we may live a new life in him. O Amazing Lord!
