I Am Alive and Free

“True freedom is apprehended by weaving our own story with the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection as we do in baptism. We prove our baptism good by dying to sin and living to righteousness. In the daily resolution to prove our baptism, we offer head, heart, and hands in service to the pattern and power of the cross, so that our true nature, emblematized in baptism, carried by prayer, and strengthened by the Spirit, rises like Christ walking out of the tomb triumphant.” ~Michael Bird
