Romans 6:1-23 // Dead to Sin - Alive to God

Host Trey Bailey is joined by Eastridge East Pastor, Kurt Petersheim to discuss Romans 6. The topic of baptism comes up and turns out to be revealing. What happens in that water?

And we talk about killing sin or it be killing you! (John Owen)

Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Romans 6:1

Scripture focus: Romans 6:1-23

Romans 6:3-4 // …when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.

Romans 6:11 // So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

Romans 6:12 // Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.

Romans 6:19b // …you must give yourselves to be slaves of righteous living SO THAT you will become holy.

Romans 6:23 // For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Main point: Dead to sin – Alive to God

Why shouldn’t we keep on sinning?

How does baptism help give us a real example?

What happens in baptism? (and maybe, WHO does any work?)

Questions for reflection:

  1. Why can't we keep sinning so that God can give us more grace
  2. How does it make you feel knowing that God has credited you as being right in His sight?
  3. What does it mean to you to be dead to sin and made alive to God?
  4. How do you live a surrendered life to God?
