SERVING SIN?

SERVING THE SAVIOR?

ROMANS 6:6-18

INTRO: WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN

1: WE ARE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST

A) CRUCIFIED, A GRUESOME DEATH

B) A SLOW DEATH

C) A TREMENDOUSLY PAINFUL DETAH

POINT: THE BODY AFTER BEING NAILED TO THE CROSS GAVE A GREAT STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE. THE CRUCIFIXION IS A SLOW BUT SURE DEATH. THE BODY WOULD LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE BUT EVENTUALLY IT DIES DUE TO THE CRUCIFIXON. IT IS NO DIFFERENT FOR THE DEATH OF SIN IN THE BODY OF THE CHRISTIAN.

2: A LIFETIME

A) ONLY SEPERATION FROM THE SINFUL BODY FREES US FROM SIN

B) V 7 HE THAT IS DEAD IS FREED FROM SIN

C) OUR LIVES WE LIVE ARE NEVER COMPLETELY RID OF SIN

POINT: THE CRUCIFIXON OF OUR OLD MAN IS A LIFELONG CRUCIFIXON BUT OVER TIME HE GETS WEAKER AND LESS INFLUENTIAL AND LOSES HIS ABILITY TO CONTROL US.

DOMINION- RULING POWER OR AUTHORITY ONE WHO HAS A SCEPTRE OF CONTROL

BODY: JESUS THE UNDEAD

1: HE DIED V10

A) CHRIST DIED

B) HE DIED UNTO SIN ONCE

C) HE LIVETH UNTO GOD

D) V 9 CHRIST DIETH NO MORE

POINT: WHEN YOU ASK CHRIST INTO YOUR HEART THAT IS IT YOU’RE IN ACCEPTED PASS GRANTED YOU ARE SAVED BORN AGAIN INTO HIS FAMILY FOREVER. HE DIED ONCE AND WAS RASIED AND LIVES. YOU CRUCIFY YOUR OLD MAN BUT HE HASN’T DIED YET HE’S STILL AROUND. ONLY JESUS THE ONE WHO DIED AND IS ALIVE AGAIN OR RESSURECTED AND AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE CAN HELP YOU LIVE UNTO GOD EVEN THOUGH YOUR OLD MAN IS TILL ALIVE.

2: BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN

A) CHOOSING TO MAKE DECISIONS THAT ARE PLEASING TO GOD

B) LIVING A LIFE AFTER HIS WILL

C) SEEKING AND SEARCHING GOD FOR EVERYTHING EVERY ANSWER EVERY SOLUTION.

POINT: SIN WILL STILL BE PRESENT BUT THE PURPOSE IS TO LIVE UNTO CHRIST NOT THE SIN THAT LIES INSIDE US. SOUNDS CONTRADICTORY SIN AND CHRIST INSIDE US, JESUS ABIDES IN OUR HEARTS BUT SIN STILL HAS INFLUENCE OVER OUR MINDS AND SOMETIMES OUR MEMEBERS. IT IS ULTIMATELY THE INDIVIVUAL’S CHOICE WHO HE OR SHE SERVES. BEING DEAD TO SIN IS TO SAY A SIMPLE CHILD’S PHRASE WWJD WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

3: SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU

A) ONLY IF YOU LET IT

B) IT HAS NO RULING POWER

C) NO AUTHORITY

D) UNLESS YOU GIVE INTO IT

POINT: WE FALL VICITM TO TEMPTATION AND THE SNARE OF SATAN. EACH TIME THE CHRISTIAN SHOULD REMEMBER HE CRUCIFIED THAT OLD MAN LONG AGO AND EVEN THOUGH HE HAS SLIPPED AND FALLEN GOD IS STILL ON HIS SIDE. GIVE THE AUTHORITY AND RULE TO JESUS CHRIST.

CLOSING: SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

1: FREEDOM

A) LIBERATION FROM SIN

B) CHOOSING TO SERVE THE SAVIOR IS CHOOSING TO BE FREE FOR ALL ETERNITY

C) SERVANTS OS RIGHTEOUSNESS MAY SUFFER BUT THEY ENJOY AN ETERNITY OF PEACE AND REST IN CHRIST JESUS

CONCLUSION: SERVICE IS ONLY YOUR CHOICE. YOU CHOOSE WHO YOU SERVE SOMEDAYS STAN WILL DECEIVE YOU AND USE YOU. REMEMBER YOU BELONG TO CHRIST AND CHOOSE TO SERVE HIM IN MIND HEART AND SPIRIT.

2: ROMANS 5:6-8

A) WITHOUT STRENGTH, CHRIST DIED FOR US

B) GOD COMMENDETH HIS LOVE TOWARD US

C) WE WERE SINNERS CHRIST DIED FOR US

POINT: THE BLOOD IS FOR EVERYONE NOT JUST A SELECT FEW. ANYONE CAN ATTAIN IT ANYONE CAN COME TO KNOW CHRIST. ANYONE CAN CHOOSE TO SERVE THE KING OF GLORY.
