Through Baptism we are freed from the control of sin. We die to sin and are born into a new life of grace in Jesus Christ. We are newly created. Through baptism God removes every trace of sin and He also remits the penalties that these sins incur. Baptism unites a person to Christ and the Church by way of grace, thus making us children of God.
Jesus Christ bore all the consequences of sin on the Cross even though He was sinless. His death on the Cross and His glorious resurrection freed us from the dominion of death. All who have been baptized have had their past sins wiped out by the action of grace. We must now remain dead to sin by our own personal effort in cooperation with God’s grace.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
