Sunday School: Higher Life Theology and Biblical Sanctification (Pt. 10)

September 9, 2018 Speaker: John Bell Series: Sunday School: Higher Life Theology and Biblical Sanctification

Passage: Romans 6:15–6:23

Big Picture:In Christ, we are freed from the slavery of sin to become slaves to God. Our greatest freedom is to become slaves to Christ. 

1: We become slaves to whom we obey. (15-18)

  • Either slaves of sin to death, or slaves of obedience to righteousness. (15-16)
  • Through obedience to God's Word, those who were slaves of sin become slaves of righteousness. (17-18)

Our motivation for serving God as his obedient slaves.

  • Serving righteousness produces holiness. (19)
  • Serving sin produces death. (20-21)
  • Serving God produces the fruit of holiness, and in the end, eternal life. (22)
  • Sin pays its servants: the wages are death. But God gives the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (23)
