Pastor Post - April 11, 2018
This Sunday we’ll begin Romans 6, which is among the most important chapters in the New Testament on the subject of sanctification. How can we become in practice what we already are in position? How do we live out the freedom from the power of sin that Jesus has won for us?
So this Sunday we’ll talk about “Freedom From Sin’s Tyranny” from Romans 6:1-4.
This text also helps us understand the meaning of baptism, and we will celebrate Christian baptism at the beginning of our service.
As you read and pray over Romans 6:1-4, think about the following:
Paul’s critics often charged that an emphasis on the free grace of God would lead to sinning. Why is that not the case?
What does verse 2 mean when it says that believers have “died to sin?” What does it not mean?
How does the ordinance of baptism correspond to death, burial, and resurrection?
I’m excited about what God is doing in this series and in our church! See you Sunday.
By His Grace, For His Glory, To The Nations,
