I live in VA service even this last weekend I was in Seattle and I get to speak at a church in the Seattle area it's a group of young people that have been inspired by the G Y C movement and their own fire from Gaza was excited to see other places you have a passion for the things of God mouse refreshing for me to get a concede some people somewhere else to have love for God 's word is truth I've also been very lost by this going through the book of Romans and as I said at the end of last week 's study if you mess the first five chapters that's okay service fees because Romans six seven eighty is where the money is in the book of Romans of course it helps if you understand the first five chapters when we get to chapter six that Romans chapter 's six is really one of us this but it's easier to the first five chapters and Paul is building a case against the Chapter six its lights the closing argument in court you may you save your best for your file pitch so to speak and in chapter six is one of those chapters in this book serve as when we got to the end of chapter five while the weak versus thirteen through twenty one versus thirteen through twenty one our comparison of the effect that Adam has had on humanity and the effect that crisis have on humanity and we saw that in verse sixteen yes Adam has had an effect that the effects that cry this is a much more so that housing effects of the effect that Christ has on this is much more and then by the time you get to and researching shows that it's a gift by grace of Christ is given to rest them as any it's a verse twenty one we see the as sent had to rein in the death even so might grace reign of righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ towards citizens where we wrapped up last week and the question is how it was courageous rain in our lives what is Romans five twenty one say grace reigns of righteousness and eternal life by Jesus Christ or someone is grace all about grace is about the righteousness of Jesus Christ raining lives and then when he has a chapter six verse one she continues the slot verse one of chapter sixties is what shall we say shall we continue again send that grace may abound what he does say grace was Grace was the righteousness of Christ reigning in our lives and now using some work what shall we continue in sin that grace may abound her sincere daughter that and as we've studied in the book of Romans there's other places where Paul says for this we see in chapter three verses three and four wheezes for one of some did not believe shall their unbelief make the face of God without effect God forbid and then he says is gotten her site is gone and righteous he taketh vengeance I speak as a member sixth daughter bed with and how shall God judge the world and so Paul Weiss to use this phrase God for bid him her service when he says is the author what he's saying is when we have God 's grace we do not continue in sin and its team knows that some people may be thinking because of chapter five verse twenty where he says where sin abounded grace did much more abound she knew that some people will take ever since they had where sin abounds the race much more abounds more send her grace and he counters the argument very quickly said this someone shall and I know Christians do this though read Romans five or twenty ten no make that argument but all you have to do is go to three versus down to see that one pause the question shall we continue in sin that grace may abound the answer is God for this house shall we better get to say whether any longer there now here's a question to consider pause Paul's made it very clear that when we have God 's grace we don't continue is not clear and his reason for that is we are to this if we are dead to sin we do not continue in this so think about this way this is maybe a little bit of the current illustrations that when a person dies if he wants you such son sex them or anything else when they respond to their death and policies in the illustration that when we have God 's grace we are dead to sin that Sears thing to consider him assigning the first five chapters around being done here in our studies Hall has been developing case for righteousness by faith through the first five chapters in Psalms chapter six Steve believes that he's proved his case clearly enough that seems with respect to being under God 's grace receiving his righteousness through his grace his argument is that weird at the same so Romans chapter six is simply an explanation of the theology that Paul has developed in the first five chapters it's not a new shift is not shifting from for example justification the sanctification sees Simpson in the same line of reasoning that he's been using for the first five chapters and when you get to chapter six now he's saying when we have the righteousness of God through his grace we are dead to sin and if you go back and look at these concepts known by the time you get to chapter three we see that we are justified by the faith of Jesus Christ we see that Abraham considered not his own body that he believed in the promises of God which even though physically his body was that through the creative power of God God could speak his creative power in this life so that he inserted both have a child and beneath by the end of chapter four we see that those you believe on God he raised up Jesus from the dead will receive into the rice salsa we've gone through this concept we see then that if we need to be raised up from the dead spiritually speaking really get to this later in chapter six is the idea that we had dead in trespasses and so then we have the righteousness of God the living dead in trespasses and sins one hundred dead tears and Paul Tennant developed this concept here soon this is what shall we say then shall we continue in sin for that grace may abound God for bid how shall we veteran dad to send live any longer therein and the slide is going to be developed to them in verse three uses now you not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death so when we become a Christian what's the outward demonstration that we take to prove that we are a Christian baptism so that Susan as Paul was speaking here universe reasons like were baptized into Jesus Christ and it's not just going into the water and coming up and some kind of formality this is a symbol of being baptized into Christ's death Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and we are baptized into dishes that none of the serious concept to ponder he realized them when you are baptized that you are partaking in what Christ particularly Kenya is not just of online and in the baptistery and yet not as a noun Chris Gray about what policy is when we earned that we are baptized into his death in Vienna and that is in you and yes when we are baptized whatever churches and in your case after hills or any other church when we are baptized it's a symbol of being baptized into Christ's death Paul's being very clear about this year and then he goes on to say in verse four he says therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death city 's continuing this thought they when Christ died this is still immigrated obviously not so now the next point that continues here that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father even so we also should walk in newness of life some were buried with him by baptism into death Christ was crucified he went to the grave but Christ was resurrected and when we come up that watery grave in use so that we will walk in newness of life it means we are dead to the old wife his son and we been resurrected to a new life in Christ by the beautiful concept on about you that if the Christian life was just a formality where I went into a baptistery went under the water came up and then live the same old wife the rest of my life without any change what was the purpose of Christianity be where would be where would be the power of Christianity where would be the power of Christ as soon as your policy we will walk in newness of life fellows can access again Doctor rooms for with the concept of the faith of Abraham Abraham had faith in the creative power of God by verse twenty one we see he was fully persuaded that what God promised he was able to alternate perform first twenty therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness verse twenty three now was not written for his sake alone but it was imputed in its first twenty four but for us also to Shamash shall be imputed if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead 's analysis we will receive righteousness if we believe what on God who raised up Jesus from the dead and what is RAM and six tell us about Jesus being raised up from the dad so Jesus is raised up from the dad and wife as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father what about us we are raised up to walk in newness of life so in Romans four when it talks about believing on him the reason Jesus from the dead what are we believing exactly we are believing that God will give us a our wife may been dead about in trespasses and send an unlike Abraham Abraham looks at the situation is is what my body is physically that I sent how children I can't have new burgers and we as an spiritual out that analogy we as are told to have the faith of Abraham to be his children to be in the seed of Abraham and yet we were tantalizingly say that God my wife is that in trespasses and sins how could I would Christ and the cancer is what Abraham she was fully persuaded that what God promised he was able also to perform you believe in God 's word that it will accomplish what it says and what God is asking us to believe with respect to Jesus being raised from the dead is that what why does I raised Jesus from the dad I will raise you to walk in newness of life so that your life will no longer be the own life being dead in trespasses and sins that he will be dead to sin and will walk in newness of life unit in rent and her absolute and sure excellent point and for produces a recording repeat of the part of the numerous experience is believing that God can also transform the people around you and if you look at the experience of a remember what it what they want us as he considered not his own body now dead neither yet the deadness of Sarah 's one so he has to overcome choosing she has physical impossibility and her impossible and so hard to talk about this before the heart of him birth experience the Abraham experienced is not only having a transformation in your own life the near face being able to produce fruit in other people and so Abraham 's faith produces fruit in Sarah not just himself so I appreciate the thoughts and secure we have been Christ raising the dead by the glory of the father we also watched in newness of life and in reverence for unit it's saying that when we believe righteousness will be imputed to us about justification by faith serve justification by faith is more than just a legal declaration check justification by faith is being raised up spiritually from the dead walk in newness of life Abraham had righteousness imputed to him we will have righteousness imputed us if we believe on him that raised up Jesus or Lord from the dead that like as Christ was raised from the Donovan glory of the father even so we also should walk in newness of life now continuing home here in chapter six verse viruses for free implants together in the likeness of his death we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection serve simple form if we died away the same way Christ died one of the same kind of resurrection is pretty straightforward how did Christ die Gethsemane father not my will but ninety nine it applies to be possible let this cup pass from me but not my will but thine be done same as us and it's interesting alliances God requires the entire surrender the heart before justification can take place faith and works page one hundred crisis fully surrendered when he went to the cross and we are fully surrendered we will be justified now continuing on numbers six him us that our old man he is crucified with that the body of sin might be destroyed that is henceforth we should not serve sin so what would be the one keyword in the servers versus crucified what is crucified our old man is crucified with him he is right it means that you are certain that this is not necessarily a pleasant experience our old man is crucified with Christ that the body of sin might be destroyed that henceforth are from this point forward we should not serve sin this will in absolutely I said right exactly sure what the thread now reverse seven number to connect the key verse seven says for he that is dead is freed from sin what is the one word in verse seven that is similar to the key word in verse the word dad is similar to what Wharton versus crucified saved verse six our old man is crucified with him of the body of sin might be destroyed verse seven says for he that is dead is what to read from some souvenir crucified your dad and your forty trims and how many just by curiosity have a King James version is not you want your marginal reading and what does the marginal reading for free from say since justified okay so what do this for she that is sad is justified so here in the end this is Paul in the King James translators decided to say freed from some of the real word is justified if your dad your justified what's the same or a similar word in verse seven his research for dad being crucified so if you're crucified and justified a sure a sure in a app absolutely and so it is true that in the judgment to be free from Sun means that you don't have to face the wrath of God and judgment which is obviously good news from inches it's interesting that now the concept of justification has become so misunderstood in the Christian church even happened people believe that you can be justified in continuing and son even denounced him for not having victory that you're still covered with the righteousness of Christ that your life is still alive that's basically dead in trespasses and sins but because you believe in Christ recovery and policy modifications here in Romans six the balance of the Middle Ages siege that believes in the flesh don't affect the purity of soul and what politician here's what when we are justified point number one in Chapter six how shall we continue this is weird that this point numbers she is when we are baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death and just like Christ is risen the data by the glory of the father even so we walk in newness of life what does that mean another way to look at is this like you for planted together in the likeness of his death were to be also in the likeness of his resurrection how was he planted he was crucified server six our old man was crucified with an Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the father so we watched in newness of life and when we are dead in person we are freed from sin on a value that is not something I want I want to be free from sin and thankful for the power of God that we can be free from St. John that in his love and mercy for us that he needed other where he came up with a way by sending Jesus so that we can be free from someone thankful for an agency that is is freed from sin or see that his dad is justified from sin now we've made the connection before between Galatians two in Romans six of being justified in being crucified you could say the key that is that is justified or you could say because the crucified or similar words you can see that he that is crucified is freed from synergy that was crucified is justified from sin so how do we become justified we are becoming crucified with Christ what is that mean we according to Paul and needs to be planted together in the likeness of his death always like this is that she uses in Gethsemane saying father if it be possible at this cup pass reminder that not my will but thine be done in a higher surrender and in-home life as God requires the entire surrender the heart before justification can take place so complete one hundred firsts are in a one hundred percent surrender to Jesus Christ now is in Galatians shoot verse sixteen is is that when justified by the faith of Jesus Christ and Galatians three twentieth so that when we are crucified with Christ we live by the faith of the son of God who is Jesus so we were crucified with him by the faith of the son of God when we are justified or justified by the faith of this so therefore to be crucified is to be justified to be justified is to be crucified in the sea point is in Galatians three twenty one we are crucified with Christ who lives in Chrysler's so when we exercise faith to say that we exercise crisis now think about it this way because it outside my father Mondragon state about this whole concept of world evaluations she was twenty and Galatians two sixteen target women justified by the faith of Christ crucified a woman of faith is not in the King James version is the only version translates it as faith of the son of God or faith of Jesus Christ and all the other versions including the new changing version which my father-in-law uses safely in Jesus or faith in the son of God and I said now I'm out of a scholar and I don't know how to read Greek I really need on so I couldn't look at the Greek and say it's not on and I said yes have you looked at that and he suggest him he's like if you look at the Greek is the faith of Islam not the faith of Jesus Christ NASA questions like thing about this one are you trying to say that your faith in Jesus safety or it did however if you say if the faith of Jesus that saves me cruise America my saved by your say by the merits of Jesus Christ Your Honor it's interesting if you take that translations as I often say I'm justified by faith in Jesus Christ you're basically saying for years your justified by your faith in something which becomes in your own merits where's if you're justified by the faith of Jesus Christ it's his faith and his parents see much righteousness by faith so and the only way we receive that faith of Jesus Christ is to be surrendered ever since I think my father-in-law for adding some theological clarity to something that Larry thought was the case because when you connect this concept of the three angels message is the faith of Jesus Christ in the third Angels message my faith in Jesus Christ so this is the three angels message so she that is dead is freed from sin he that is that is justified from sin verse eighty three now if we be dead with Christ set for dead with Christ that means were crucified with Christ the means were justified by faith now if we be dead with Christ we believe that we shall also live with him any similar to Galatians two twenty wife which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God who loved me and gave a form so if we be dead with Christ we believe that we shall also live with him and I love what Paul does verse nine knowing that Christ being raised from the dead diet no more death him over the phone so Jesus die on Calvary he went to the grave he was resurrected on the third day and Hall says here in verse he's raised from the dead and seemed to highest no more and death house no more dominion over in other words and Jesus died and he's want to come back and dynamic crossing in because that has no more power over and it's interesting death has no more dominion over that helps us and understand verse fourteen Paul says for sin shall not have dominion over you for ye are not under the law but under grace reading it back to the sender of this Christ died and he died once death has no more dominion over him a come back and be crucified again and again and again literally speaking that has no more dominion over and never send for in that he died she died in the sin once and in that he will knows he will do something on a number so what do you notice the word Paul uses what's the first word Paul uses likewise just as Christ died in the Anderson wants to death has no more dominion over him pulses likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed Anderson but why would God through Jesus Christ our Lord so what are we dead to sin and yet we are all live through Jesus Christ our Lord verse twelve let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body that ye should obey it in the loss thereof so when we are dead to sin sin therefore does not reign in our mortal bodies here's an interesting point doesn't fourteen one injected some new theology and church and what you want the same as the sun was setting remains but does not rain is always has a son some in your life but it doesn't rain in your life and yet Paul is saying however how shall we better dentists then continue any longer therein let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies and in such occurs Illinois says that once persistently cherished will eventually neutralize all the power the gospel so to understand what Paul is saying here when he says let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies he's not saying it's okay to have a few seconds hanging around with you saying is when your datacenter Dennison is one of me and we don't continuance and secure our example Christ died he was raised from the dead and he dies and he says does let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies and inverse search team considered the early universities is that it neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness and listen but yield yourselves under God as those that are alive from the dead and your members as instruments of righteousness and to dust you have a choice of trading yield here do you yield to God or do you yield to say and when you yield to someone he's very developed this constantly gives you the concept that we are a server edition were yielding to either mere servants of Center servants of God forty four thousand homeless terms of the first fourteen for sin shall not have dominion over you for here not under the law but under grace researching what then shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace of God from this upon myself wanting and wanting just say this it makes us illustrations one hundred rap of her Bible study portion finish after six next week but here's the point price died he's raised from the dead he dies no more death has no more dominion over we that wife as Christ was raised from the dead we also walk in newness of life therefore we are dead to sin sin does not reign in our mortal bodies and sin has no more dominion over us when we become dead to sin Christ when Christ died she doesn't come back down and die a few more times every once in a while that's it and what Paul is saying here is when we are buried with Christ into his death when we surrender completely to God when we are crucified with Christ and experience justification by faith we become dead to sin when we become dead to sin sin no longer reigns of our mortal bodies and it has no more dominion over us because we are now dead to me that now I realized that we can all look at our Christian experience and say well there was a time when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ of what happened because I still have areas that don't always want up with the will of God by following this fortunately of course the one was saying this is that if we if we confess your sins he is faithful and just to forgive us or something close us from all unrighteousness of men if any man sin we haven't happened since we are thankful that God is merciful to us he understands our weakness and that if we do send that forgiveness is available but also cleansing is available is not just one of the other but both are available of what Hall of Fame uses that word when it is possible in the Christian life to have victory Orissa and as a case in point how many people can we think of crude may be more alcoholics are addicted to tobacco or something of that nature and when they accept Jesus Christ into their lives Christ is in victory over that sinful habit and they never go back to mean they are dead that I have it never comes back as so and I think there's probably some people sin was removed and addicted to some of those habits in the past and the question is this if God can give us the victory over alcohol and tobacco and he in we've seen him to many people 's lives why can she give us the victory over things like gossip and selfishness anger and losing her temper and impatience and things of that nature if we are dead to sin Christ is living in glass what Paul is saying is that according to the power of the gospel Christ will live out his life through the end of Christ lives out his life he's not in a snap that the person makes me irritated this on the other and that's a tough our powerful cents that send some I have been terrorist we are not under the law but under grace and be under grace is grace reign through righteousness and eternal life by Jesus Christ or lower that number is five twenty one and this is where hung in a rapid said David then when you do with your verses sixteen to twenty three what policy mix of the comparison of being servants of Center servants of God and when your servants of God must say this in verse twenty chances but now being made free from sin and become servants to God you have your freedom and holiness in the end everlasting life now that we talked about being made free from sin earlier in this chapter and what was the same as being justified so being justified we become servants to God with our fruits and the holiness and the end everlasting life and I believe that what Paul is talking about here he's talking about servants of God and as I said earlier the hundred and forty four thousand Hall the servants of God the book of Revelation describes a group of people who are without fall before the throne of God there is no guile and in the judgment they were found to be without fault before the throne of God which he means they experience the power of the gospel because in the first three chapters pulses if you are not under God 's grace he will receive the wrath of God and the judgment but yet here's a group of people and forty four thousand are without fault before the throne and other called the servants of God and Roman sixes if you're serving your made free from sin or justified so I'll close with that but the last thing I want to say is to be justified is not just legal declaration without any change policy should clearly understand Ellen Weinstein clearly misunderstood Jesus God require the entire surrender the harbor for justification can take place and sanctification nutritious acidification is the work of a lifetime for you because Paul's is I die daily I'm crucified with Christ daily I is sanctification is maintaining the initial experience of being crucified with Christ because the old man wants to have a resurrection every day and run seven talks about that when it denied probably a couple weeks here they thanked God for the power of Jesus Christ that we can be made free from sin and so if any of us here are struggling with sin the night I think sure if she'd she'd come to Jesus Christ he's describing a merciful and faithful high priest Hebrews and that he will give us grace and mercy to help in time and need in Hebrews four and he will help he whatever it may be he will help you with whatever song you are struggling with taking a victory and give you peace and that's the power and in person
