Sunday School: Higher Life Theology and Biblical Sanctification (Pt. 7)

July 29, 2018 Speaker: John Bell Series: Sunday School: Higher Life Theology and Biblical Sanctification

Passage: Romans 6:1–6:14

Romans 6:1-14

BIG PICTURE: Believers who are united to Jesus participate in his victory over sin and the new life his resurrection inaugurated. Consequently, Christians are no longer “slaves to sin” (6:6) because we have been “set free” from sin and have become “slaves” to God and righteousness (6:17–22). Sin is no longer our “master” (6:14a). So be joyfully confident, Christian: God gives us hope for the future . . . but he also transforms the way we live until we attain that hope!

• United with Jesus in death and resurrection (1–5)
• The results of dying with Jesus (6–7)
• The results of being raised with Jesus (8–10)
• Putting our new status into action (11–14)


The Basic Logic of Romans 6:1-11:

1. Christ died to sin and rose to a new life (10)
2. Christians have died with Christ and will be raised with Christ (3, 5)
3. Therefore, Christians have died to sin and will be raised to a new life, a life that has begun already (2, 8, 11)
