Unity With Jesus

This picture of my children was taken last Sunday morning before worship. It was Easter. As we do with any holiday, we took lots of pictures. Before getting in the van and heading to the church building, I told the kids I wanted one more picture. One of them outside holding hands. We had to do it in the driveway, because it had been raining and the grass was wet. (Thank you, God, for the rain!)

Anyway, one of the kids asked, "Why do you always want a picture of us holding hands?" I said, "To show you are united." Of course, a few of them didn't know what that meant, so we explained it on the way to Bible class.

We want unity in our family. You do, too. Unity in the family is important, but more importantly, we should want to have unity with Jesus.
And we can:

"Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin." Romans 6:4-6
