The sixth, and final, sermon in this series on Romans chapter six deals especially with God’s gift of eternal life in Christ. Whereas sin leads to death, salvation leads to sanctification, the outcome of which is eternal life.
Everyone is subject to a master. Either the cruel master of sin, or the compassionate Master, the Righteous God. Everyone is born under the yoke of slavery to the former. Through faith in Jesus, we may be freed to joyfully serve the later.
Though sin might remain in our mortal bodies, by faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus we can be killing sin, which has no right or reign over us, and may present ourselves to God as holy instruments of righteousness.
We must believe that we have been united with Christ in His death killing our old self and untied with Christ in His resurrection giving us new life so that by continued faith in the justifying work of Christ we might live free.
