“Alive for Him” (Romans 6:11-14) I. Introduction. A. Orientation. We saw this morning, Jesus can save you from death. He’s the only One who can Because He’s the only One who conquered death By rising from the dead. He has for you, if you’ve trusted Him. B. Preview. But when you trust Him Something happens: You die – To what once were, To yourself. You are buried with Christ – But you are also raised with Him To a new kind of life. On basis of this, Paul says there are certain things you should do: 1. Consider yourself dead to sin, but alive to God. 2. No longer submit to sin, but now only to God.
2 And that you can do this, because 3. Sin is no longer your master. Let’s think about each for few moments. II. Sermon. A. First, you must consider yourself dead to sin, but alive to God. To save you, Jesus actually had to kill you. Don’t be too shocked or alarmed – Because the you He killed Is the old you. The old you threatened your life. Because all he wanted was evil, All he thought was evil, He might have done some things right, But he always did them for the wrong reasons. He was God’s enemy, He was guilty, He was under sentence of death. To save you That old man had to go. And so God did away with him.
3 He nailed him to the cross, And buried Him with Christ So that you might be free. Paul writes, “Our old self was crucified with
in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin” (Rom. 6:6-7). Is this true? God says it is. Does this mean the old you Is completely dead? Sadly, no. If it was, you wouldn’t have to struggle with sin. But it does mean His power is broken, So that you are no longer a slave to it. You have died to sin. If you died, How can you still be alive? Because He also raised you again to life As a new creature in Christ. Paul writes, “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the
which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Gal. 2:20).
