Resurrection goes far beyond simply life after this life; it is life here and now; life not shaped, limited, or destroyed by the awesome powers of death. In spite of all that appears to be true, in spite of all who say they are in control, in spite of all the powers that be and their attempts to define who we are and how we live, Jesus Christ risen means we have been set free!
—Janet Wolf, “Chosen For . . . ,” quoted in A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God, by Rueben P. Job, Norman Shawchuck, & John S. Mogabgab (Upper Room Books, 2013)

We were buried together with him through baptism into his death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too can walk in newness of life.
