EPISLE. Rom. vi. 3. ll.
RETHREN: All of us, who have been baptized in

Christ Jesus, have been baptized in his death. For we were buried with him through baptism unto death : that as Christ rose from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also may walk in a newness of life. For if we have been planted with him in the likeness of his death, so we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection. Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin may be destroyed, and that we may no longer be slaves to sin. For he that is dead, is justified from sin. And if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Christ : knowing, that Christ being risen from the dead, dieth no more, death shall no more have power over him. For in as much as he died to sin, he died once: in as much as he liveth, he liveth to God. So do you also reckon, that you are dead indeed to sin, but alive to God, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

any one satisfy them with bread here in the desert ? And he asked them : How many loaves have you ? They said : Seven. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And taking the seven loaves, he gave thanks, and broke them, and gave them to his disciples to set before them, and they set them before the multitude. And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed them, and commanded them to be set before the people. And they eat, and were filled. And they took up of the broken remnants seven baskets full. And they, that had eaten, were about four thousand. And he sent

For when you were slaves to sin, you were free from righteousness. But what fruit had you then of those things, for which you now blush? For the end of them is death. But now being made free from sin, and become the servants of God,
