Dead to Sin, alive to God (pt 1)

Should We Keep on Sinning?

By Pastor Craig, January 09, 2022

Introduction: As we enter a new section, let us review Paul's flow of thought and see where we are headed.

  • (6:1-3:20) - God's in condemning sin.
  • (3:21-5:21) - God's in justifying sinners.
  • (6:1-8:39) - God's in sanctifying believers.

1a What shall we say then?

Where does the reality of boundless grace lead you? How does it make you feel?

1b Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?

Does willfully and wantonly continuing a life of sin line up with the rest of the scripture?

Consider the following:

  • John 5
  • John 8
  • 1 Cor 5:11
  • 1 Peter 1:15-16
  • 1 John 3:6

2a Certainly not!

2b How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?

What it says

What it does not mean?

  • It does not mean that we are no longer to sin or sin.

What it does mean?

  • We have died to the of sin.

What is the goal of grace as it reigns in your life?
