Raised to Walk in a New Life


I’ve been working with an unmarried couple over the last few weeks. They were referred to us by Bill & Stephanie, a couple we baptized at the beginning of the year. 

Last night as we talked, I found Satan attacking them viciously. Their lack of ability to stand up to him and fight had everything to do with their position before God. They were separated from Him and had no ability to overcome Satan’s lies and arrows. They needed life. They needed to die to themselves and be raised to walk in newness of life.

Darrance and Andrea

So, tonight we watched Darrance and Andrea give their lives to Jesus Christ. I’m thankful to have watched their deaths and to have been a part of that moment when the angels in Heaven rejoiced over two new lives in Christ. Their deaths bring incredible glory to God and I pray that the gift of the Holy Spirit will lead them into all righteousness.

Father, thank you for allowing me, of all men, to be a part of this moment. I praise your Holy Son for abundant life and forgiveness from my old ways of living. Thank you for offering that same thing to Darrance and Andrea! Pour your Spirit out on them and allow them to live fully in the new life you’ve given them.

Darrance and Andrea, thank you for allowing my family to be a part of your new life.
