By Grace living a new life

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ

Ro 6:1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?

Ro 6:2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

Ro 6:3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

Ro 6:4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Ro 6:5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.

Ro 6:6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—

Ro 6:7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.

Ro 6:8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

Ro 6:9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.

Ro 6:10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

Ro 6:11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Ro 6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

Ro 6:13 Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.

Ro 6:14 For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.(Nrsv)

Ro 6:4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Ro 6:5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.

Introduction

A man went on vacation to the Holy Land with his wife and her mother. While in Israel, the mother-in-law died from a heart attack. The couple went to a local undertaker, who explained that they could either ship the body home which would cost more than $1500, or they could bury her right there in the Holy Land for only $150. The man said, "We’ll ship her home. "Surprised, the undertaker responded, "Are you sure? That’s an awfully big expense, and we can do a very nice burial here. "The man said, "Look, 2000 years ago they buried a guy here and three days later He rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance."

St Paul tells us:

Ro 6:5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.

What does “united with him in his resurrection mean?”

Ro 6:1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?

Ro 6:2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

• Having accepted the Grace of God – undeserved favor – that brings Salvation
